Agriculture and food insurance for the agribusiness industry

The food and agri sector is fast, dynamic and multi-faceted. It is continually responding to changing market conditions and evolving customer demands, while proactively looking to improve the products and services it provides.

A number of challenges face firms in the food and agri sector, from changing legislation, extreme weather condition to supply chain risks. Food product recalls are also running at record levels, while a major food safety or food hygiene incident would be hugely damaging to a company’s reputation.

JLT can help companies manage these risks by providing bespoke food and agriculture insurance and risk management solutions.
