As insurance brokers and employee benefits specialists, we work with food and beverage manufacturers - from small start-ups to global brands - to provide expert advice in all matters relating to risk, insurance and employee benefits. We do not provide ‘off the shelf’ products, but rather ensure that insurance and employee benefits are tailor-made and ‘fit-for-purpose’, providing ultimate protection of physical and intangible assets and employees alike.
Working with clients across the ingredients, dairy, meat processing, flavours & fragrance and convenience sectors, we are quick to respond to prevailing trends such as the manufacture of plant-based foods, probiotics, and meatless meat. Rather than focus merely on the transactional nature of the insurance placement we aim to work with our clients to understand what drives their businesses and the barriers to success from a legal, regulatory, financial and operational perspective.
Our clients are our single most important asset and sit at the centre of everything that we stand for – many, if not all of our competitors say this, but it is our unwavering client-focused approach at all levels of the organisation that truly sets us apart.
We believe that an insurance programme should be driven by a thorough understanding of a client’s risk profile and we place great importance in understanding their businesses, supply chains, manufacturing processes, storage facilities and distribution. Similarly, we understand that our clients’ employees are their most important asset and we work tirelessly to assist them in attracting and retaining staff with a comprehensive array of benefits from cycle to work schemes to workplace wellness programmes and pensions advice.
For us, no two clients are the same, and whilst the risks that they face might be similar, we work tirelessly to ensure that we tailor our service according to each client’s needs. Whether it’s reputational damage and crisis management, health & safety, food safety and contamination or employee wellness, we’ve got you covered.
