As many people have been told, Burgerville, in recent years, has been advertising itself as having and selling fresh and organic food. Burgerville has claimed that he now use sustainable local produce from class farms around Oregon. One reason to believe this is because thy constantly have seasonal food combinations depending on what produce is grown on certain seasons. Along with that information, Burgerville also has single food items on the menu that constantly changes seasonally. Having locally grown produce makes the prices on the menu affordable. Rest assure, in this article that mentions how Burgerville uses sustainable and locally grown food, also has hormone and anti-biotic free beef for their consumers. What kind of a false image would Burgerville is selling if their locally grown food from small farms had anti-biotics and hormones? As mentioned by the same article, their beef comes from Country Natural Beef, whose practices are third party certified, and its free-range turkey meat from Diestel Family Turkey Ranch in Sonora, California. Their main goal is to have and feature organic food that’s also free-ranged.
In a recent surprise, Burgerville has also started serving their customers breakfast. Those breakfast foods involve burritos, biscuits, bagels, sandwiches, platters, and plenty of eggs. Of course, in order to satisfy the consumers, people expect the same idea of their breakfast options being locally grown, fresh, organic, and hormone and anti-biotic free. As mentioned in this article about eggs, Burgerville has decided that all of their egg-based breakfast menu items are from eggs that had the hens live in a cage-free environment. Some exciting news that was mentioned in this article by Paul Shapiro was, “Burgerville is the first-fast food restaurant to take this step.” Burgerville purchases about 600,000 of their eggs from Stiebrs Farms of Yelm, Wash. Previously, Burgerville was purchasing their eggs through Sysco Corp., which also received their eggs from a variety of producers. Due to the fact that they would have to be paying a higher price for their fresh, local, and organic cage-free eggs, their breakfast items will be at a higher price, but that didn’t seem to bother the consumers much by the looks of it.
