The company has already made concrete strides toward this commitment by securing contracts with its suppliers, ensuring that they are on track to complete the process on schedule.

Papa John has recently taken the extra step by boosting its transparency and educating its consumers on what certain ingredients are and why they are in consumers' food.

Next summer, "NO antibiotics in our chicken toppings and poppers" will join Papa John's already extensive list of "‘NO' ingredients," including: NO trans-fats, NO MSG, NO fillers in core meat toppings, NO BHA, NO BHT, and NO partially hydrogenated oils.
