Food Manufacturing Insurance
If your business is focused on making or preparing food or ingredients to be used in food or beverages, then you have very different financial risks than most other businesses. Yes, your property and machinery will require very similar policy protection.
But when it comes to public and product liability you can be open to very financially serious and even bankrupting risks.
Business insurance for food industry operations requires careful analysis of your business and how and to whom you sell your products. All too often it can happen that businesses like your own end up in claim situations you thought you might have covered, only to find out it wasn’t.
At Aspire Insurance Solutions our specialist commercial brokers have in-depth experience with all the risks and types of claims you could face. Talk to us today on 1300 886781, if you have any concerns about your existing policy and want to save on your premium at the same time.
Unique Risks Of Food Manufacturing Industry
The food and beverage industry is big business but it also opens you to certain risks that could end up costing crippling amounts of money. These situations are common enough and unless you have the right policy wording it could end up in serious business disruptions.
Here are some situations you could encounter.
Imagine one of your most popular products is tarnished with a contaminated ingredient. As a result a lot of your customers become sick and they organise themselves into a class-action lawsuit against your company.
Even though it may not have been your fault that the ingredient became contaminated, you are exposed to a very expensive risk here.
Product Contamination Recalls
Similarly, you could be facing a situation where you identify a problem with one of your products before it has sold in large quantities. You are now faced with a very large bill to have all those products removed from shelves and either shipped back to you or disposed of.
Regulation Compliance Issues
The food industry is heavily regulated to protect consumers. Whether you intentionally or unintentionally end up in a situation where you’re not fully compliant, you could face very hefty fines and legal fees.
These are just a few common risks that our services can help financially protect you from. There are many more that your broker at Aspire will be more than happy to explain.
