Running a catering business ‒ whether you work alone, like Amy’s Polka Pots in Ribchester Lancashire, or run a small firm – can be incredibly rewarding, but also brings risk. Not just risks to your business and its premises, for instance from flood, fire, or break-in, but risks to staff and customers too.

Making sure your businesses is protected by catering insurance will give you peace of mind and enable you to get on with what you do best – delighting your customers with outstanding catering services.

As a previous customer of smei, they contacted me regarding my premium this year and got me an amazing price. Gentleman I dealt with was brilliant, and not too pushy to take on the insurance.
