Chipotle is the company that changed the fast food game when it introduced Niman Ranch pork into its pork carnitas and showed narrow-minded number crunchers that despite a higher price with Niman pork, sales grew with the use of a top quality ingredients; its fleet response to growing concerns over GMO food is equally impressive.
It also shows again why it was a blessing that McDonald’s sold its large stake in the company back to Chipotle in 2006. The company also uses a very large number of organic ingredients and states that it purchases most of the following items organically: avocado, black beans, pinto beans, brown rice, cilantro, jalapeno, oregano and romaine lettuce.

Much of the GMO comes from – you guessed it – soy ingredients; notably soy oil, though some locations use rice bran oil instead of soy.
