What Is Bakers Insurance?
Bakers insurance is a series of liability insurances combined into one policy to protect your business from the expensive cost of claims. Common liability claims faced by bakers can include:
- Third-party bodily injury and property damage claims
- Equipment damage claims
- Food poisoning or unlabeled allergens that made a customer sick
FLIP’s insurance for bakers includes general liability, product liability, equipment coverage, and additional policy options that can help bakers create a customized insurance plan that fits their business needs.
What Type of Insurance Does a Bakery Need?
In order to fully protect your business, you will need the following baking insurance coverage:
- General liability Insurance
- Product Liability Insurance
- Business Property Insurance
- Damage to Premises Rented Insurance
- Additional Insureds If You Rent Your Business Space
Even if you run a home-based baking business, you still need insurance in case a customer contracts food poisoning from something you sold them or if your kitchen floods during a storm and your equipment is damaged.
Regardless of where you operate your baking business, insurance protects against legal fees and allows you to focus on baking rather than worrying about the confusing legal stuff.
How Much Is Insurance for a Bakery?
Bakery insurance starts at $25.92 a month with an annual option that starts at $299 a year. Think of it this way: the money you spend on fixing a broken oven is significantly more than the money you would spend on bakery liability insurance.
The basic policy includes up to $2,000,000 in general and product liability and up to $10,000 in business equipment coverage. Additional policy options include increased liability limits, professional liability coverage, and cyber liability coverage.
It’s also important to note that we provide unlimited additional insureds for free, so if you need to extend your coverage to a landlord or event organizer, you can do so faster than you could say “homemade cookies.”

If you accidentally spill and leave a stain on the carpet at an event, you could be held liable to pay for those damages. Damages to Premises Rented is an excellent addition to your policy if you run your bakery out of a rented space like a commercial kitchen, or if you participate in events like a farmers market. It can protect you from paying for damages you might cause to that space.
