Managing Tomorrow's Risks Today

MMIB is an international insurance intermediary offering in-house underwriting facilities backed up by first class security. Through our custom design of marine open policies, we insure goods from point of origin to your customer’s door. We specialize in solving the problems involved with the national and international movement of food into the United States, Canada, and the European Union, including frozen and fresh seafood products, agricultural goods, processed goods, meat and poultry items.

Domestic and international commerce is our sole focus. Our clients are situated throughout the United States and the world. Our communication and computer capabilities bring us into immediate contact with importers and shippers worldwide.

MMIB’s uniqueness lies in our ability to customize policy conditions and create unique rating plans thereby providing our clients the broadest protection and widest selection of pricing strategies. Our program can offer a full range of integrated financial support and service, ranging from 100% insurance protection to contingency service contracts when buy back guarantees and payment after passage terms are incorporated into the terms of sale.

Affordable risk reduction is our primary purpose in supporting the food trading activity of the worldwide shipping community. MMIB achieves this end by combining insurance with an intricate Trade Support System unique to the insurance industry.  When you become a policyholder, your premium dollar purchases a wide selection of professional services at no additional cost.

We have dedicated the past fifteen years to perfecting insurance on food shipments. All of our specialized coverage has been copyrighted. Our program is designed to facilitate access into the U.S., EU, and Canadian markets and to provide affordable protection against the risks associated with sourcing and importation of all types of food. MMIB’s program combines rejection insurance coverage tailored to your real needs with an array of professional trade support and advocacy services critical to success in today’s complicated food regulatory environment.

MMIB maintains a reference library of FDA/USDA regulatory guidelines, which not only monitor changes in regulatory sensitivity by product, packer and country, but also monitor the posture of different FDA/USDA offices around the country. Because regulations are issued in guideline form, each office is allowed to use its own discretion. We are therefore able to track the operating differences from one entry district to another. MMIB handles all necessary communications with Food Regulatory Agencies and directs all appeal efforts, thereby guaranteeing you the benefit of our expertise, and relieving you of the burden of handling these complicated actions yourselves.

Our offices are strategically located on both coasts, in Fountain Valley, Southern California and Boston, Massachusetts, with our corporate headquarters in Park City, Utah. From these vantage points, we review the trading history of selected product lines, by country of origin and packing house and can respond to your questions from three major time zones.
