Shake Shack And Zero Acre Farms Are Testing Cleaner Frying Oil In New York City


Shake Shack looks to take their fried favorites to the next level by teaming up with Zero Acre Farms to test their healthy and environmentally friendly cooking oil at two select locations in New York City.

Representing one of the first deployments of Zero Acre oil in the foodservice sector, the tests at the Hudson Yards and Battery Park City are part of the brand’s ongoing commitment to Stand for Something Good across their operations as well as in the community.

During the pilot, Shake Shack’s Crinkle Cut Fries, Chicken Bites, Shack Stack, Veggie Shack, ‘Shroom Burger, Chicken Shack, and new Hot Menu items will all be fried in Zero Acre oil instead of soybean oil.

With an aim to end the food industry’s dependence on non-eco-friendly vegetable oils, Zero Acre oil is made from rain-fed sugarcane, which is the highest yielding crop in the world, resulting in a sustainable and versatile cooking oil that performs well in high heat and brings out the flavor of the ingredients.

The brand’s fan favorites, now fried up in Zero Acre oil, can be found at the Hudson Yards and Battery Park City Shacks in New York City for a limited time.
