Chipotle Clarifies Relationship with Cereplast, Inc.

Denver,(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) (NYSE: CMG.B) today clarified the nature of its relationship with Cereplast, Inc. (OTCBB: CERP), a Hawthorne, Calif. company that manufactures proprietary bio-based, sustainable plastics.

Currently, through a supplier, Chipotle purchases plastic cutlery made using Cereplast Compostables(R) resin for its one restaurant in Millbrae, Calif. to comply with a local ordinance. In a Dec. 15 press release, which was not reviewed or approved by Chipotle, Cereplast misstated the nature of the relationship, stating that "A system-wide rollout of up to 800 Chipotle locations is expected in the near future."

Chipotle currently has no plans to expand its relationship with Cereplast.
