Our Mission


To provide the food industry with a unique combination of food safety and insurance services not found in the market place today. We use our 35 plus years of experience in both industries to help our clients solve real, every day problems and challenges with practical comprehensive solutions that make sense for their businesses. 


What makes us different

We are committed to becoming a true one stop, all inclusive destination where business owners cannot only have their food safety and insurance needs met but can also take advantage of SmithConnen's network of equipment, products, engineering and lab services companies. 

Since every business is unique in its operations, food safety and insurance solutions need to be designed to specifically address the needs of each company. Companies today face grave consequences for failing to meet mandated county, state and federal food safety regulations. They do not need to face those challenges alone. SmithConnen can and does help business owners meet and exceed those requirements. 

SmithConnen is seasoned in crisis management techniques to solve immediate problems, but that is only the beginning. We also take the time to train your staff to think proactively; to be vigilant in identifying potential production hazards before they can cause damage; and to respond quickly. We want your staff to have the tools and confidence to embrace quality and safety as part of their daily responsibilities. 

As part of our services, each company is provided with a distinctive document binder where all food safety related information and all company insurance policy information are instantly available.
