‘Good Chicken Award Update’ - In 2012, Chipotle Mexican Grill UK got a Good Chicken Award on a current policy for their fresh chicken. In 2019 they signed up to the Better Chicken Commitment. However, the company has not reported progress since.

"Our Founder, Steve Ells, started Chipotle back in 1993 with the idea that food served fast did not have to be a typical fast food experience. Through our vision to improve the quality of the food we serve, Chipotle is seeking better food from using ingredients that are not only fresh, but that where possible are sustainably grown and naturally raised with respect for the animals, the land, and the farmers who produce the food.

Animal welfare is particularly important to us and we use quality well-sourced meats, including Freedom Foods chicken, pork that comes from free-range pigs reared on farms that offer large acre paddocks where the animals can roam freely and display natural behaviours, and beef from Farm Assured British Farms where cattle are reared in humane and compassionate conditions."

Jacob Sumner, MD, Chipotle UK
