My first few months at Midan

It’s been about four months since I started working at Midan Marketing.

Looks like I finally have my dream job!

Chipotle’s platform against modern agriculture

As a company made up of individuals passionate about food and agriculture, we at Midan Marketing, do not support Chipotle’s platform against modern food production. Their recently launched ad campaign is alarmingly hypocritical. We do not see cows, pigs, and chickens being raised at every one of Chipotle’s more than 1,400 locations, as suggested in the video. According to their Facebook page, Chipotle claims that their video is set in a “fictitious future world” – and it is just that.
