Spend more time on quality control
The food industry directly affects consumers and it is essential to leave no doubt about the origin and quality of your products. Your operations can be severely disrupted by industrial hazards, liability losses, machinery breakdown, health contamination and exposure risks, and various regulatory realities. These can have a devastating impact on your production line and, therefore, on your financial operating margin.
At BFL CANADA, our team understands that your industry is highly complex, particularly when it comes to risk management and the impact it can have on your business. As a broker, we offer personalized service and the implementation of structured and alternative risk transfer solutions that allow you to better control the risks you face.
Discover your coverage solutions
Covers the company in the event of accidental or criminal contamination and pays for withdrawal costs, losses caused by a recall, as well as operating losses and product rehabilitation costs declared by your company or by public authorities.
Whether such contamination or recall is caused by the abnormal development of a natural component, a dosage or design error, a safety defect, the presence of foreign substances, a change in food hygiene standards or laws, or whether the product is qualified as unfit or dangerous to health, this insurance protects you.
Given the large number of frozen deals and the scarcity of new processes on the market, buyers with available capital to implement will tap into their networks to find exclusive business opportunities.
