CNBC's Nicolas Vega is reporting that Shake Shack is going Green - or at least their fries are!
Shake Shack is testing a new frying oil made from sugarcane plants at two of its New York City locations, potentially making their famous crinkle-cut fries "feel lighter and less greasy." Traditionally, the chain used soybean oil in its deep fryers, but this partnership with Zero Acre aims to introduce a more environmentally sustainable and healthier option.
The sugarcane oil is high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, making it a stable choice for frying. If successful, this change may expand to more Shake Shack locations, demonstrating the company's commitment to reducing its environmental footprint and exploring sustainable initiatives.
Looking forward to seeing how it turns out!
