Food Risk Management

At every stage, threats to food safety and quality lurk around the corner.

And when threats turn into reality, the consequences can be disastrous. Undeclared allergens, microbial contamination or foreign objects can impact the entire downstream path of ingredients.

A recall can be dangerous to a consumer’s health and dangerous to the financial health of your business.

When it comes to insurance claims from recalls, the food and beverage industry is the largest non-automotive sector by value of claim. More and more, these claims ripple out to include multiple industries and geographies as our food supply chain grows, driving up the cost of coverage.

So what do you do when this happens to you? You need a trusted partner. A partner with technical expertise across multiple sectors and a proven track record of helping manage and reduce risk, so that your insured clients are better equipped to prevent costly recalls.
