A Pig Can Make All the Difference in the World: Business and Ethics

Chipotle, that great purveyor of the burrito, has made a name for itself in the food industry. It is typically known as a company which has a determined work ethic, and interest in the environment, and a foot hold in food industry providers.

Recently, Chipotle ran into issues with its pork supplier. It seems as if there was a bit of controversy regarding whether the pork was truly free range or not.

What did the burrito giant do? Did they simply turn to another, less wholesome provider of pork meat? No. Instead, they took pork off the menu completely. Chipotle would rather hold up its ethic than turn somewhere else for a quick buck.
