Chipotle Unveils GMO-Containing Foods on Its Website


DENVER — Chipotle has started identifying the Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) used in its offerings on its website.

“At Chipotle, telling the story of our food has always been important. We want our customers to know exactly what they are eating. For us, this is real transparency, because knowing more about where our food comes from is always better than knowing less,” reads a statement on the company’s website.

According to the ingredient lists, most items such as chicken, beef, tortillas and rice, contain GMOs. In an effort to eliminate the GMOs in their products, the company has switched from soybean oil to sunflower oil. According to the chain’s website, soybean oil is almost always genetically modified, however there is no commercially available sunflower oil.

The company also supports California’s Proposition 37, a bill that will require labelling of raw or processed groceries sold in California that are made from genetically modified plants or animals.
