Impossible Foods Suppliers Invoicing Requirements


At Impossible Foods, we’re continuously striving to make invoicing a seamless process from issuance to payment. In doing so, we aim to drive efficiency, effectiveness, and enhancement of our internal controls. We’ve put together the following guidelines to ensure compliance to our invoicing process. 

All invoices must be sent in a Black & White PDF to [email protected] and contain the following information to be approved:

1. Vendor’s remit-to name

2. Remit to details such as check delivery address or bank details

3. Bill to details – Impossible Foods address: 400 Saginaw Drive Redwood City, CA 94063

4. Ship to details – Impossible site where products were shipped/service was performed

5. Title of document – invoice or credit memo

6. Unique sequence number – invoice number or credit memo number

7. Invoice date in MM/DD/YYYY format

8.Purchase Order number must be included (will start with 45 and is a total of 10 digits) for PO-based Purchases. 

For Non PO purchases, Impossible Foods (IF) Requestor name with IF e-mail address must be included. Any invoice that does not include these mandatory fields will be immediately rejected.

Unless your service falls under one of the following “exception” categories or is less than $1,000 in total, you are required to provide an Impossible Foods PO# on your Invoice failing which it will be rejected. NO PO NO PAY policy for invoices that don’t fall under “exception” categories.

For Additional Special Handling & Miscellaneous Charges (Freight/Recycling Fees etc.) Indicate the associated charge, if applicable, at the header of the Invoice, unless explicitly stated on the PO Line. 

10. Payment terms. IF Default Payment Terms are Net 60 days. If your payment terms are sooner, please contact the purchasing agent on the PO to change the terms and you must send a copy of the contract/PO demonstrating the same. Without that documentation, payment will continue to be processed per IF’s default terms.

11. Taxable amount
