We have all heard of the recent epidemics of people getting sick across he US after eating at various Chipotle Restaurants. Chipotle is known for being apart of and promoting buying local fresh ingredients, and make their food 100% GMO free. Todays culture has a very unique view on GMO’s. The general public’s opinion is very split between them being something to not think about, or a big concern. Many people have chosen to eat at Chipotle over other places since they hold their foods to such standards. But, since the recent outbreaks Chipotle sales have reduced and some locations have been shut down. Working at Chipotle myself the location has lost half its sales and has had half as many customers since the reports of their food causing sickness began. Customers have asked me “is the food safe here? has there been any scares here?”. To which the response being no. It is interesting to see how the public reacted to the situation, and if that change some of the publics view to think of non GMO food negatively as whole. Chipotle’s goal is to provide fast food that is both healthy and fresh, being better quality than other fast food places such as McDonalds or Wendys. As we discussed in class, many fast food places buy from larger commercial farms. So it is just one place trying to make a change and offer the public a different option of what our culture would view as “healthier, fresh and humane”.
