We work with food and beverage manufacturers - from small start-ups to global brands - providing expert advice on risk management, insurance, and employee benefits.

As your trusted advisor, we deliver insurance and employee benefits programmes designed for you to ensure you have complete protection for your employees, as well as the physical and intangible assets of your business.

Why Verlingue


Our team has extensive experience of the food and beverage industry. We work with clients across a wide variety of aspects of the food and beverage industry including the ingredients, dairy, meat processing food to go, flavors & fragrance and convenience sectors.

We are constantly looking at new and innovative developments in the sector, such as the manufacture of plant-based and probiotics. Rather than focusing merely on the transactional nature of the insurance placement we work with you to understand what drives your business and the barriers to success from a regulatory, financial, and operational perspective.

We operate as an integral part of your business – an extension of your team, fully focused on every aspect of your operations.

Key Features 

We believe that an insurance programme should be driven by a thorough understanding of your risk profile and business. This will include your supply chain, manufacturing processes, storage facilities and distribution.

Your employees are your most important asset. As such we will work closely with you to construct a programme to help you to attract and retain talent with a comprehensive array of benefits, such as cycle to work schemes to workplace wellness programmes and Group 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 you have a complete risk and insurance programme matched to your specific requirements. Whether it’s reputational damage and crisis management, health & safety, food safety and contamination or employee wellness, we’ve got you covered.

“During my time as Transport Manager at The Bread Factory we have both seen and implemented change within our department. One major change was the relationship we built with Jamie at Verlingue. The knowledge of our business and his extensive Insurance knowledge has seen us both rewarded. With quarterly face to face meetings to discuss such areas as Service / reporting levels, Claims history, loss Ratio & Risk Management, monthly statistics and weekly catch up phone calls. Without question I would not only recommend Verlingue but Jamie Barham himself”.
