Food manufacturers

Ignoring risk can result in shutdown or loss of revenue for any business, and food manufacturers are no exception: the public exposure of foodborne illnesses originating in your plant; a weather event that disrupts your supply chain; or the steady erosion of profits from workers’ comp claims; all can eat away at the bottom line.

At Hanover Risk Solutions, we’ve pinpointed those common exposures and marshaled solutions to help mitigate risk.

  • Claims binder

    The cost of claims is always a concern, but experience has shown that claims cost can be reduced if prompt and accurate reporting is in place. Prompt reporting also means your injured workers receive appropriate medical attention.
