On the official Chipotle Grill website they have a new page dedicated to their stance on GMO’s. The page is titled “FOOD WITH INTEGRITY G-M-OVER IT“. Chipotle has been a leader in the restaurant industry by being the first national restaurant to disclose GMO’s in their food and now they take a huge leap forward in the industry because they are the first to have a menu free of GMO ingredients in their food. Chipotle goes on to state on the page that the “manufacturers of GMO seeds claim that GMOs are widely considered to be safe, but we don’t believe the scientific community has reached a consensus on the long-term implications of widespread GMO cultivation and consumption”. Chipotle even created a list of the reasons why they wanted to remove GMO’s from their food. Here is the list:
1. “SCIENTISTS ARE STILL STUDYING THE LONG TERM IMPLICATIONS OF GMOS.”
2. “THE CULTIVATION OF GMOS CAN DAMAGE THE ENVIRONMENT.”
3. “CHIPOTLE SHOULD BE A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE CAN EAT FOOD MADE WITH NON-GMO INGREDIENTS.”
We’re so proud of Chipotle Grill and applaud their stance on GMO’s. As a mom I feel so happy that now while I’m out and about I can stop to grab a bite to eat at a national restaurant that has non GMO food for my family. This is a major victory! Can’t wait to see which restaurant will follow suit next…..
