The next time you chow down a bowl of delicious Mexican food or wrap from Chipotle, you may want to know that the company is not just a fast-casual restaurant. It is an establishment that cares about the source of the food and wants to leverage tech like AI, robotics, and sensing technologies to make regenerative farming more efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable.
Chipotle Mexican Grill is investing in Greenfield Robotics and Nitricity through its Cultivate Next venture fund. Greenfield Robotics develops autonomous robots for regenerative agriculture, reducing herbicide use and farming risks. Nitricity creates sustainable, cost-efficient fertilizers using renewable energy, air, and water, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
These investments align with Chipotle’s mission to foster a better world and support its growth plans by enhancing sustainable practices in agriculture and farming.
