A new series of commercials from Mickey D's features the owners of massive industrial farms talking about their crops, which eventually end up in your Happy Meal (after passing through several middlemen). Are the Golden Arches trying to convince you they're part of the slow food movement?
Even the most anti-fast foodies will admit that Mexi-chain Chipotle's been making strides in supporting responsible food production, using local purveyors, and championing a new sustainable store design. A campaign to reintroduce itself to its eaters features a gorgeous new stop-motion ad by London-based Johnny Kelly that shows how Chipotle eschews the icky practices of factory farming. Michael Pollan would surely approve.
Integrity isn't the first word that comes to mind when you think of burritos. Chipotle is out to change that with a new marketing overhaul, Food with Integrity. Though they won't be tampering with the tasty (and caloric)
burrito recipe, they hope to alter the way American think about fast food and fast food advertising.
