Heinen's Grocery Store to Feature Mike Gerber With Gerber's Amish Farm Chicken(R), a Where Food Comes From(R) Approved Supplier, During 'We Know Our Sources' Event June 6-7

CASTLE ROCK, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Where Food Comes From, Inc. (d.b.a. IMI Global) (OTCQB: WFCF), the most trusted resource for third-party verification of food production practices, today announced that Heinen's Grocery Store will host a special appearance by one of its valued protein suppliers, Mike Gerber of Gerber Poultry, on June 6-7 in its newest location in Glenview, IL. Mr. Gerber, whose parents began Gerber Poultry in 1952, will be sampling Gerber's Amish Farm Chicken and available to answer any consumer questions about their products.

Heinen's long history of innovation and customer service is maintained with the Where Food Comes From® brand; the grocery chain holds the distinction as the nation's first food retail chain to adopt the Where Food Comes From labeling program. Where Food Comes From enables full farm-to-fork traceability allowing shoppers using smart phones to scan the quick response (QR) bar code on the meat package and subsequently access information about the source and origin of the product. With the Where Food Comes From labeling program, Gerber provides its Heinen's grocery shoppers with easy access to verified information about how and where those products are raised and produced.

Research reveals that consumers are highly concerned about how and by whom their food is produced, and find third-party verification of food production processes very appealing. "The Where Food Comes From label makes the production process completely transparent and ensures customers' full confidence and comfort when making food purchases -- something that's important to all of us," said Leann Saunders, President of Where Food Comes From, Inc. "Research indicates that many consumers indicate willingness not only to seek out, but to pay more for food products whose processes and product claims are verified by an independent third party."

Mike Gerber noted, "The partnership between Gerber Poultry and Where Food Comes From and its verification divisions ensures that Heinen's customers not only can trust what they are purchasing but also establish a connection with the individuals responsible for producing their food. Our growers are wonderful, hard working family farmers who care deeply about the quality and welfare of the chickens in their care. I am proud to share their stories, as well as the story of my family and our Gerber team associates with our Heinen's customers."

Tom Heinen, Co-President of Heinen's Grocery Stores, also highlighted the importance of facilitating the customer-producer relationship. "We believe that customers should have access to more information. Where Food Comes From provides customers a meaningful solution at the meat case -- it means they're able to make better purchasing decisions and helps remove the unknowns that often occur when deciding what to buy to feed your family."
