For roughly a year, Chipotle has been working with the Oakland-based Hodo Soy company to develop an organic, GMO-free and soy-based protein that was good for the environment, vegan and, most importantly, delicious. After countless tests and tweaks, Chipotle officially added Sofritas to their New York and Boston menus this week.tIt’s scheduled for a nationwide launch March 3, and has been well-received so far: Tofu items have already made up 3% of sales.
