Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. Research Report

On August 13, 2013, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (Chipotle) announced that the Company has not changed its standards for responsibly raised beef. According to the Company, Chipotle's meats come from animals that are never given antibiotics or added hormones. In addition, Chipotle stated that although the Company considered new protocols, including one that would allow animals to be treated with antibiotics only when necessary for their continued health, that protocol has not been implemented. Chipotle further informed that its current protocol allows the use of antibiotics to treat sick animals, but those animals must be removed from Chipotle's supply. Chipotle is currently evaluating if this strict "never-ever" antibiotic protocol is best for the animals, or whether animals can be treated when necessary and allowed to remain in the herd. According to the Company, in 2012 alone, Chipotle served more than 120 million pounds of responsibly raised beef, pork and chicken and while it is inevitable to experience shortages of responsibly raised meats, the Company also posts notices so its customers are aware of the change.
