Where Food Comes From, Inc. (d.b.a. IMI Global, Inc.) (OTCQB: WFCF), the most trusted resource for independent, third-party verification of food production practices in North America, today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

"We continue to deliver double digit revenue and earnings growth in spite of the effects of weak cattle prices and the dampening impact the strong dollar is having on European demand for American Non-hormone Treated Cattle (NHTC)," said John Saunders, chairman and CEO. "Our performance in the face of these beef industry headwinds underscores the strength of our business model, which emphasizes diversity in our services mix in order to better weather downturns in any given market segment. We continue to look for ways to diversify our services mix -- both organically and through M&A -- in order to strengthen and grow our business and further differentiate ourselves from the competition."
