John & Leann Saunders

Everything about Where Food Comes From, including our vision, can be attributed to our founders, John and Leann Saunders, CEO and President, respectively. For twenty years, the Saunders have been dedicating their lives to driving value for producers through transparent and authentic communication with consumers about by whom and how food is produced. They believe that by providing third-party, unbiased assessments of production-related claims, Where Food Comes From, Inc., can assure consumers that the producers participating in the company’s programs are doing exactly what they say they are.
