Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples praised Chipotle Mexican Grill CEO Steve Ells June 26, for agreeing to open a discussion about how the growing restaurant chain can look to Texas ranchers to help supply beef for its restaurants rather than choosing to import meat from Australia.

According to a June 26 Texas Department of Agriculture press release, Staples sent a letter to Ells questioning why Chipotle made the decision to import beef from more than 8,000 miles away in Australia, and, in turn, increase the company’s carbon emissions and costs. Staples also expressed concern in the letter about Chipotle’s lack of outreach to the Texas Department of Agriculture and the state’s major cattle and beef organizations regarding supply opportunities for the restaurant chain. Texas is home to the largest cattle herd in the nation, and Texas ranchers are always looking for new opportunities to grow their businesses.

Staples looks forward to fostering a dialogue with Chipotle’s executive team and Texas beef industry leaders.
