When manufacturing food or beverages for consumption, you face an array of risks that have the potential to financially devastate your business. Below are a few examples of how liability insurance can help you:

  1. Your food manufacturing plant packages vegetables from local farms and sends them to farmers markets across the county. Unfortunately, a batch of produce wasn’t washed properly, causing several people to get  food poisoning. They sue your business for mishandling the product. Food manufacturing insurance can help mitigate or even eliminate the out-of-pocket costs associated with the claim. 
  2. While giving a tour of your beverage processing facility, a customer slips on some spilled liquid, injuring their wrist. They sue you for the injuries and you’re held liable for their medical bills. FLIP could help cover these costs.
  3. During a heavy monsoon season, your grain milling facility experiences severe flooding, damaging expensive and essential equipment. Insurance for food manufacturers can help repair or replace your damaged items.
