Chipotle has long been a fan of antiobiotic-free fare with a focus on sustainably-raised meat which they call F.W.I. - or Food with Integrity.

Chipotle has signed an agreement with supply-chain company HAVI/Perseco, which will use sustainable plastics from bio-based manufacturer Cereplast to supply the chain with green cutlery.
