Real Foodprint is based on academic and industry research compiled by HowGood.
HowGood, an independent research company with the world's largest database on food sustainability, assessed each of our 53 ingredients and compared them to the industry average agricultural impact against five key metrics. Real Foodprint takes Chipotle's award-winning sourcing standards across each of its ingredients into account to show the estimated impact that a Chipotle order can help make on the planet. The positive impact for each measure is calculated as the difference between averages for each ingredient based on Chipotle's sourcing standards, and averages for the same ingredient based on conventional industry standards. HowGood utilizes advanced statistical methodology and over 600 third party scientific and peer reviewed studies. Data sources and certifications include third party certifications, peer reviewed studies, scientific research, industry reports, government data, investigative journalism, NGO research, expert opinion, and international regulations.
