Chipotle’s nutritionist claims the food is better than its US counterpart
The company has said it will no longer allow its suppliers to use chicken or turkey in its products, but the nutritional value of the protein-rich protein chips is still an issue.
The Chipotle spokesperson told The Hindu that the company’s suppliers had agreed to use the meat for its own production but the supplier was still making chips from it.
“Chipotle has agreed to the use of chicken and turkey for all our product lines,” the spokesperson said.
“This agreement has been in place for a long time and has been ratified by our suppliers.”
Chipotle did not respond to a request for comment from The Hindu.
The spokesperson added that the Chipotle nutritionist had made this clarification in the past.
“In the past, Chipotle did use chicken in our products,” the Chipotles spokesperson said, adding that the nutritionist “did make this clarification”.
“We will continue to adhere to the same practices we have always been, including using only chicken and turkeys, in our food and in all of our packaging,” the company said.
