“The Mexican fast-casual dining chain on Monday announced that it has become the first national restaurant chain to use only non-GMO ingredients. Co-CEO Steve Ells, in a statement, said the Denver-based chain has achieved that unusual goal not only at Chipotle Mexican Grills but also at its ShopHouse Southeast Asia Kitchen locations.”

“A GMO is an organism whose genome has been altered via genetic engineering – resulting in DNA with one or more genes that wouldn’t typically be found. Many food crops, including most corn and soybeans, are genetically modified so that they can fight off certain diseases or improve their resistance to herbicides.”

“The move by Chipotle comes at a time major restaurant chains and food makers are falling all over themselves to remove ingredients from their foods and beverages that consumers – particularly younger consumers – don’t want. Last week, PepsiCo announced that it was removing aspertame from Diet Pepsi. Earlier this year, McDonald’s announced that over over the next two years it will stop using chicken treated with antibiotics commonly used for humans.”
