Chipotle fans experienced a devastating loss when the QSR announced that it wasn’t offering carnitas at certain locations anymore. The restaurant chain said in January that its pork supplier was raising pigs under inhumane locations. Because of this, carnitas offerings were halted.
Now, after pork-free months, it looks like the meat will be back and better than ever.
Thanks to a new UK-based supplier, Karro Foods, Chipotle announced that it’ll once again serve carnitas on the menu. CNNMoney reports that Chipotle has made it a goal to get pork from national suppliers. However, since conventionally-raised pigs haven’t been much of an option in the US, the chain bit the bullet and decided to look internationally.
