When we think “bad” food—unhealthy food produced at the expense of the environment, animal welfare, and exploited employees—we often think first of fast food chains.
As it turns out, casual dining restaurant chains operating under brand names like Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse are among the worst offenders when it comes to the callous treatment of the environment, animals and food workers.
Darden Restaurants, Inc. (NYSE: DRI), owns and operates more than 1,500 restaurants that generate over $6.8 billion in annual sales. In addition to Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse, Darden’s owns Bahama Breeze, Seasons 52, The Capital Grille, Eddie V’s and the Yard House.
This means our commitment to provide our guests with nutritious, high-quality and responsibly-sourced food, to support and develop our team members and to give back to our communities and protect the natural environment.
Nice words. But they aren’t true.
