Papa John’s is continuing to deliver on its promise to bring “Better Ingredients” by announcing it has removed artificial flavors and synthetic colors from its entire food menu. This includes all pizza ingredients, pizza toppings, dessert items, and sauce selections.

“We closed out 2015 announcing our commitment to serve chicken raised without antibiotics and are ringing in the New Year artificial-flavor and synthetic-color free,” said Sean Muldoon, Papa John’s Senior Vice President of Research and Development. “We’re so proud to be able to show our customers how much we care about what they’re eating. This exemplifies Papa John’s continued efforts to deliver high-quality products. It’s the right thing to do.”

Ever committed to its “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.” promise, Papa John’s strives to deliver only the best ingredients in its pizza. That is why the company invests over $100 million dollars a year in its products, and it is this dedication that drives Papa John’s to continue achieving milestones on its journey to deliver better products.

Papa John’s is starting off 2016 with no artificial flavors, no synthetic colors, and by summertime, no antibiotics in its chicken toppings and poppers. These, of course, join Papa John’s current “no” list of: no trans-fats, no MSG, no fillers in core meat toppings,no BHA, NO BHT, and no partially hydrogenated oils.
