/UCW/ CASTLE ROCK, CO – Where Food Comes From, Inc. (d.b.a. IMI Global, Inc.) (OTCQB: WFCF), the most trusted resource for third-party verification of food production practices in North America, today announced its continued commitment to industry and consumer responsiveness and engagement through its membership in three key Roundtables.
The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB) was the first of these organizations for Where Food Comes From, Inc. to engage with, initiating membership in April of 2014. Since then, the Company has also joined the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef and US Roundtable for Sustainable Beef.
Collectively, these organizations are dedicated to multi-stakeholder initiatives developed to advance the continuous improvement in sustainability of the global beef value chain. In 2015, the GRSB established Principles and Criteria for Global Sustainable Beef production, and both the Canadian and US Roundtables are utilizing those criteria to establish similar benchmarks for their respective regions.
“The Global Roundtable for Sustainable beef has a very long list of impressive and influential participating members, from individual ranch families to the largest beef brands in the world,” said Leann Saunders, President & COO of Where Food Comes From, Inc. “It was easy for us to decide to engage with the organization, and with the subsequent Canadian and US Roundtables as they were developed. Beef producers around the world are being asked to talk about sustainability, and a collective industry effort to define, measure and share that story is reflected in these Roundtables.”
