Once just available to Air New Zealand premium customers the company has gone on to make a significant splash at the 2023 Auckland Food Show, where they caught the attention of attendees and potential partners.

To ensure a successful entry into the New Zealand market, Impossible Foods collaborated with two protein partners, Integrity Food Distributors Limited and Beak & Johnston Pty Ltd. The partnership proving fruitful, as the Auckland Food Show witnessed a stellar show experience at their first standalone marquee, hosted by Tate and Multiplied.

"Launching Impossible Foods into New Zealand wouldn't have worked so well if we didn't have great protein partners who know their meat," says NZ Country Manager, Alex Worker. "It was a treat to catch Jono & Ant from Integrity Food Distributors and Mary Boulton from Beak & Johnston with teams at the event."

The company's growth across retail & foodservice segments has played a pivotal role in their decision to hire an experienced Sales Manager for New Zealand. The objective is to bring to life more delicious meat-alternative experiences in a country firmly embedded in the animal beef industry at the same time making a positive planetary impact.

'Throughout our journey into the New Zealand market, Impossible Foods has received immense support from Cook & Nelson and Delicious Business teams. Their efforts ranged from sampling in New World supermarkets to hosting engaging culinary events, such as making fresh pasta ragú at The Village and serving burgers at the FIFA Women's World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™', says Alex Worker.
