Chipotle gone local

Interesting article about the fast food chain Chipotle and how it has started to buy locally raised pork. A measure that presents an promising opportunity to farmers that have seek alternative farming methods. For decades, family-own restaurants and cafes have purchased some of their products from local farmers, adopting their menus to the local growing season. But for a national fast food chain to include local farmers into their list of suppliers is simply unprecedented. Although is definitely encouraging news that mark an trend away from organics and towards local foods, is too early to predict if other chains that shipped their food from all over the world will join the bandwagon.
