Integrated Management Information, Inc. (IMI Global) (OTCQB: WFCF), a leading provider of verification and Internet solutions for the agricultural/livestock industry, today announced it has changed the corporation's name to Where Food Comes From, Inc. to better reflect the Company's industry leading brand and its mission to become the world leader in informing consumers about the origins of their food. Where Food Comes From® is also the name of the Company's innovative labeling program that allows retailers and restaurants to provide their customers with details on the origins of their food.
The name change, which is effective December 3, 2012, was approved by the Company's board of directors and by stockholders representing a majority of the Company's outstanding shares. The Company's new CUSIP number is 96327X101.
The Company will continue to use the D.B.A. IMI Global, which enjoys tremendous industry and customer recognition around its core verification services for cattle ranchers and farmers, feed yards and packing plants. Likewise, the Company's International Certification Services, Inc. (ICS) subsidiary, a leader in organic and gluten free verification, is also well recognized throughout the industry and will retain its name.
"Changing our corporate name to Where Food Comes From is a logical progression for the Company as we expand our portfolio of solutions geared toward informing consumers about the origins of their food," said John Saunders, chairman and CEO of IMI. "Our Where Food Comes From labeling program continues to gain momentum as a unique way of connecting consumers to the producers of their food, and this name change will serve to enhance that brand. I want to emphasize to our thousands of customers that the only thing that is changing is the corporate name -- customers will continue to do business with the same people and organization and will continue to benefit from the same effective solutions that we have always provided."
