Safe Food En Route, LLC

Jennifer Crandall founded Safe Food En Route, LLC in 2018, a food safety consulting firm that makes corporate level food safety programs accessible to all companies.

Over the last 23 years, Jennifer has worked with both private and publicly held companies, balancing scientific and regulatory guidance with a clear understanding of operational and manufacturing directives that are crucial to the success of a food business.

Jennifer is passionate about providing full solution, corporate status food safety and quality programs to businesses that want to level up. She has partnered with the industry leader in document management and compliance systems, ReposiTrak, to help create an automated workflow around their food safety programs using software and automation to streamline and improve the process.

Jennifer has a passion for education and is a regular guest lecturer and alumni contact for Purdue University Food Science students; and has served on the Curriculum Advisory Committee for Cincinnati State’s recently approved Culinary Arts and Applied Food Science Bachelor of Arts program.

In 2020, Jennifer contributed to Dr. Darin Detwiler’s book, Building the Future of Food Safety Technology: Blockchain and Beyond in hopes to provide more focus on food safety management programs in the early stages of food safety focused software platform development.

In June 2021, Land Betterment Corporation appointed Jennifer Crandall to Board of Directors, as an Independent Director, to assist in the expansion of the company’s corporate governance and building out its sustainable business pillars.

Prior to founding Safe Food En Route, LLC, Jennifer worked in the food industry in various roles including 8 years in dairy and juice manufacturing and 12 years at Kroger Corporate in their Corporate Food Technology and Sourcing departments. Jennifer worked in various roles exposing her from “farm to fork” which helped her understand the many obstacles within the supply chain. In her last 12 years at Kroger, she was the business lead for developing the software solution initially intended to ensure Kroger’s compliance to applicable FSMA regulations.

Jennifer has a Bachelor’s Degree in Food Science from Purdue University and an Associate’s Degree in Agriculture from Vincennes University.
