Due to our extensive experience, our expert team are well versed in the risks that businesses in the food and drink industry are exposed to on a day to day basis.

We continuously review and update our food and drink scheme to reflect emerging risks such as cybercrime, key process machinery breakdown and subsequent loss of profits and legal and regulatory cover for breaches in areas such as incorrect labelling of allergens or incorrect origins of unprocessed meats.

Traditional risk areas such as Public Liability, Product Liability, Employers’ Liability and Business Interruption are growing in complexity. Add this to evolving risks such as Brand and Reputation Damage, Product Recall, Supply Chain Disruption, Regulatory Change and Environmental Risks, then the need for increased cover and risk management becomes paramount.
