EVOL Burritos Commits to Humanely Raised Meats

EVOL® Burritos, Boulder-based maker of made-from-scratch natural and organic frozen burritos, announced it will now source all its beef and pork from Niman Ranch, a 30-year industry leader in humane and sustainable livestock practices. EVOL already sources free-range poultry from Petaluma Poultry and cage-free eggs from Colorado-based Nest Fresh Eggs. “EVOL Burritos is a perfect fit for Niman,” said Jeff Tripician, chief marketing officer and executive vice president of Niman Ranch. “We share core values about animal care and environmental preservation. And we share a mission — both Niman and EVOL are driven by a passion to produce exceptional food that consumers can feel good about eating.” EVOL’s insistence on sustainably and humanely raised meats ushers in a new standard in the freezer case. EVOL Burritos believes that quality and integrity are equally important ingredients. By partnering with Niman Ranch, EVOL is choosing to support the industry gold standard for humane animal care.
