All the ballots have been cast and tallied to help peta2, PETA's youth division, decide who should be named the winners in the group's seventh annual Libby Awards. Libby Awards ("Libby" is for "liberation," as in animal liberation) went to animal-friendly people, companies and products in 22 categories this year, and the victor in the category of Best Vegan-Friendly Restaurant Chain is Denver-based Chipotle.

"Chipotle's vegan menu items help customers looking for health-, animal-, and Earth-friendly food stay right on track," PETA Youth Marketing Manager Emily Rodriguez, said in a company press release. "And with so many locations, Chipotle makes delicious vegan eating for people on the go more convenient than ever."

Chipotle uses local, organic and fairly farmed produce when possible. Topping peta2's official tasters' list is the Vegetarian Burrito, loaded with fajita veggies, black beans, and cilantro-lime rice and topped off with preservative-free salsa and a scoop of fresh guacamole. Any Chipotle burrito can be made into a bowl for gluten-free diets.

Chipotle donated more than 150 burritos to Roosevelt Senior High School in Los Angeles for the premiere of the new Spanish-language version of Paul McCartney's video exposé of the meat industry, "Glass Walls."

Winners were selected based on several factors, including vote count. For more information, visit peta2.com.
