Our company pioneered the new concept of “regional marketing” and was representing such prestigious packers as HP Hood, Idaho Potato Packers, King & Prince, Empire Poultry, and others. Later, our name also became synonymous in New York with Plantation Foods, Holly Farms, and Coldwater Seafood. The diversification and expansion of our product lines spawned a period of rapid growth during which a half dozen regional offices were opened from Charlotte to Buffalo.
In the early 1980’s, we recognized the nature of our business was changing and found it appropriate to scale back our efforts in our regional offices and fully concentrate on the New York market.
In the mid 1990’s, we pursued the concept of dramatically expanding our product lines and purchased the foodservice division of a major retail brokerage company. This expansion did not work out as we envisioned. We did gain more personnel and many more products as planned, but we felt ourselves losing our ability to concentrate on individual products and maintain specific commitments to our packers — the very backbone of our business for the preceding 40 years.
SMC has returned to our original operating philosophy; focused marketing of specific product categories into the Metro New York market through innovative sales approaches that use our vast experience in the food industry to deliver the best possible results in our market area. We are a boutique brokerage company that has no other brokerage company to compare it to – we are focused and specialized to handle a limited number of principals with the maximum amount of penetration by any marketing company regardless of their size. We are on our business – all the time. We make a difference for our principals and customers in a manner than incorporates integrity, respect and continual progress.
