Chipotle is beloved by many around the world, it’s a great on the go option to eat a relatively healthy lunch. However, muslims living abroad may be wondering whether their food is halal or not. More specifically though, we wanted to know if their meat was halal.

Meat served in Chipotle is not Halal. We reached out to Chipotle and they confirmed that their meat is not Halal.

We Contacted Chipotle Directly To Find Out If Their Food Is Halal

To confirm whether or not their meat is halal, we reached out to Chipotle directly. We E-mailed them saying:


Hope your day is going well.

I wanted to know if the chicken and beef served at Chipotle is halal? I was also curious to know if specific franchises in the U.S or Canada do serve halal meats?

Thank you

They replied back saying:


Thank you so much for reaching out. Sadly, Chipotle meat is not halal. Have a great week!

I am a Muslim that has been living in North America for more than a decade. I am keen on knowing which foods, lifestyle choices, and financial decisions that are halal or not. I enjoy sharing this information with my readers and do the research myself so that readers don't have to.
