Panera reps say the food chain will remove artificial colors, flavors, sweetners, and preservatives from their food by the year 2016.

The change to the food stems from a growing dislike by the company’s customers for such ingredients.

The bakery-café chain, which has roughly 1, 800 U. S. locations, plans to make a pledge to swear off certain ingredients as part of a new “Food Policy” being unveiled on Tuesday.
The announcement comes at the peak of the company’s slow sales growth and is currently working to have a fresh start for the business. They are committing to “clean” and “simple” ingredients in their food.

There are about 10 Panera locations in the Atlanta area.

The company sees natural foods as being a marketing advantage, regardless of any nutritional benefits.
