Food and Drink Export Insurance

Why does my business need specialist Product Liability Insurance for Exporting Food and Drink Products to the USA?

In recent years, food exports have been soaring from the UK to the USA.
From product recalls to third-party liability, specialist food and drink business operating in today’s global supply chain faces many challenges.

The Food and Drink sector is a complex area with many factors to consider.

US Product Liability Insurance is essential for manufacturers, distributors and service providers  within the UK food and drinks business exporting to North America and Canada (including Amazon FBA and Pro Sellers).

Do not assume that a UK policy can just be extended to cover the USA.

Insurance to cover your liabilities in the USA must be flexible enough to be scalable with your business requirements, buying insurance cover today knowing that sales to the USA or Canada is going to increase soon could cause a problem.

It’s important to remember that the USA is made up of 50 states but 51 insurance jurisdictions, each with different rules, regulations and exposures.

Food and Beverage Exporters to the USA will need insurance cover whatever they are doing, it’s an essential part of your business and protects your assets whether it is just whilst stock is being moved or if you have a full manufacturing business.

A specialist food manufacturer insurance policy provides protection for your business from production, its storage and then finally the transport to its final destination in the USA or Canada.

For suppliers of specialist food products such as food supplements purchased elsewhere you might be storing products in the UK that require warehousing before your products are shipped or perhaps you sell your products online that go into the USA through Amazon, as such Amazon FBA Insurance is a requirement.

While there are many challenges around arranging USA export cover, they are certainly not impossible. USA Protect can provide an insurance policy that gives you with peace of mind and the correct product liability protection when exporting to North America. Insurance cover should enable you to fulfil your business’s ambitions and make the most of opportunities – not prevent you from doing so.
