The fast food industry is hearing consumers’ cries for transparency and quality in their food. Big chains are cleaning up their menus, getting rid of antibiotic-fed meats, GMOs and offering healthier options. In recent months there have been multiple announcements from the likes of Chipotle, Panera and McDonalds on how they are improving their menus for the masses. For some of these major corporations it’s speculated to be a media grab, while others are probably responding to recent declines in sales and forced store closures. Regardless, these issues are spending more time in the spotlight and that can only lead to increased education and awareness.
