What Is Baked Goods Insurance?
Baked goods insurance is made up of a series of liability coverages grouped into one policy to help shield your business from the cost of expensive claims.
FLIP’s insurance for home-baked goods includes general liability, product liability, inland marine coverage (tools and equipment), and damage to premises rented coverage.
Do I Need Insurance to Sell Baked Goods From Home?
Legally, you don’t need baked goods insurance. But without it your business is vulnerable to the cost of claims. These costs could be several thousand dollars and put your business in financial jeopardy. So in the long run, yes, you need bakers insurance to sell baked goods from home.
Picture this: Your baked goods business is being sued by a customer who had an allergic reaction to your cookies because of an unlabeled allergen. The average attorney costs $250–$350 per hour. Do you have enough savings to pay for an attorney out-of-pocket?
Risks and claims can happen at any time and are often unpredictable. Trip-and-fall accidents, property damage, or a customer contracting food poisoning from your business can all result in expensive claims. Baked goods insurance can mitigate or even eliminate those out-of-pocket costs should your business get involved in an accident or lawsuit.
How Much Does Insurance for In-Home Baked Goods Cost?
Insurance for selling baked goods starts at $25.92 per month or $299 per year. The price of your policy can fluctuate depending on several factors:
- Coverage limits
- Additional coverages included in your policy
- The gross income of your business
- States you operate in
