Food & Agriculture Insurance
Comprehensive Risk Management for Agricultural & Food Processing Enterprises
USI’s Food & Agriculture team focuses on mitigating and insuring risks throughout the entire supply chain— from farm to fork. Our Food & Agriculture clients face extensive challenges with global supply chain exposures, advances in food distribution systems, government regulations, food contamination and spoilage, environmental challenges and business continuity. In 2011, the U.S. government passed the Food Safety Modernization Act, which implemented new regulations that have required the industry to increase investment in food safety processes and be more accountable. More sophisticated testing and traceability has dramatically increased and exposed businesses to added liabilities, resulting in a higher risk of business shut down.
USI works with our clients to address these risks through industry specific risk management techniques and risk finance strategies.
USI’s Food & Agriculture team structures insurance solutions and services including:
- Employment Practice Liability for Seasonal Employment
