These consumer pressures have made Chipotle follow these socially environmental practices and only purchase ingredients from specific suppliers.

In Not going to Starbucks: Boycotts and the out-scouring of politics in the branded world, Bryant Simon highlights consumers protesting Starbucks because of their use of genetically modified milk and lack of free trade coffee (159).
