National Craft Butchers

We are the preferred insurance provider for National Craft Butchers (NCB) members.

Insurance is an important part of owning a butchers shop, as it can protect you should an accident occur which then affected the everyday running of your shop. However, it can be a confusing and time consuming thing to arrange – the last thing you need when you’re running your own business.

That’s where smei can help. Just like butchers have excellent skills and knowledge about the meat they sell, our team has specialist knowledge of insuring businesses just like yours. They can help you find the right cover – which is great news for people in such a busy profession.

Insurance can protect your business, your livelihood, and your customers should an unfortunate incident happen and you need to make a claim. There are many potential risks when running a butchers shop. And any insurable incident, from a broken window to severe flooding can, if not handled professionally and appropriately, become a major nuisance in the day-to-day operation of your business, with spiralling costs and potential loss of earnings.

We have a team of insurance experts who can offer advice and specialist knowledge on the type and level of insurance you need. With access to quotations from a range of UK insurers we aim to provide you with a competitive quotation.

As a broker we are able to offer a choice of products depending on your business needs, from a wide range of market-leading insurance companies as well as several other specialist insurers who can cater for your business insurance requirements.
