In the summer of 2012 Andrew (Mr. Lorenz) left his senior position within the USDA to form his own consulting group (DND & Associates).  Early in this venture, Andrew recognized an opportunity to serve the smaller food industry operations which had gone untapped largely due to smaller operations’ inability to pay for quality consulting assistance.  A plan emerged to develop a software package so that DND & Associates could provide quality services to all segments of the food industry no matter the size of operations.  We trademarked and started doing business as We R Food Safety!™ to better identify who and what we are, experts in food safety!

In the fall and winter of 2012 several events happened that changed the landscape of the food safety industry.  The most dramatic was the publication of the FDA rules for the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).  The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting federal regulators’ focus from contamination response to contamination prevention.  These new rules dramatically changed how the FDA regulates, and has created a new market for food safety. 

In the early spring of 2013 it became clear that the food safety software package being developed was expanding in scope and complexity; many of our Large Clients wanted a paperless solution to deal with the massive amounts of paper they generate on a daily basis.  To meet the needs of our small, medium, and large clients we put all of our resources into developing the most robust software solution that the food industry has seen to date!

In July 2019 it was time to take the next step and take the company to the next level of customer experience and success.

Chiton Investments owns multiple trademarks and does business under the “We R Food Safety!™” name.  No one else has our unique ability to not only offer food safety consulting, software development, and cutting edge technology that we do.
