Papa John's completes removal of 14 unwanted ingredients
In June of 2015, Papa John's International Inc announced that it was working to remove 14 unwanted ingredients from its menu. Today, the pizza-making organization marked another Clean Label milestone with the fulfillment of that promise through a letter from Founder, Chairman and CEO "Papa John" Schnatter, saying "As part of our Clean Label commitment to you, Papa John's was the first national pizza delivery chain to announce the removal of: preservatives such as BHA and BHT, flavor enhancer MSG, cellulose and partially hydrogenated oils, and High Fructose Corn Syrup. We also fully transitioned our chicken used in grilled chicken pizza toppings and chicken poppers to be fed on a vegetarian diet and raised without human or animal antibiotics. And as we promised this summer - we've completed the transition to cage-free eggs across our entire menu."
