Heinen’s Value-Based Partnership with Where Food Comes From

Where Food Comes From was founded on the business of helping companies like Heinen’s bring messages of sustainability and care to the forefront of the food conversation.

As a grocer that cares about communicating the differences in their products to consumers, this natural alignment in beliefs and values makes the partnership between Where Food Comes From and Heinen’s a strong match.

In the words of Leann Saunders, “Where Food Comes From is proud to partner with Heinen’s on the CARE certification program because of our commitment to doing the right thing for the right reasons and operating with a business model centered on sustainability. CARE is all about connecting the people who want to make a difference in the world, and together, Where Food Comes From and Heinen’s can do just that!”

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
