PFAS Update

October 14, 2022

At CAVA, we care deeply about the impact we have on our communities and the world at large. Recently there has been media coverage focusing on the presence of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Certain PFAS are known to be persistent in the environment, and it can be difficult to remove all traces of them from packaging. We are committed to transitioning to guest packaging that does not contain intentionally added PFAS. CAVA is partnering with new packaging suppliers who are committed to supplying us with products that meet this standard. Our packaging transition started in August 2021, and our goal is to complete the transition for all to-go food packaging used in our restaurants by the end of 2022. While we have been working diligently at this effort, it has taken longer than we hoped due to a multitude of factors related to the pandemic, and especially global supply chain challenges. CAVA is committed to providing quality products that meet our valued customers’ expectations and will periodically keep our guests updated on our progress.
