Swiss Re Corporate Solutions has launched insurance cover for the food and drink industries in the UK, Ireland and Italy.

The cover mitigates the risks of product contamination or failure and is provided by RQA Group.

RQA Group is a food and drink consultancy and training firm in crisis management, product recall and liability, business continuity planning and health and safety.

Tony Buckle, head of Europe, Middle East and Africa for Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, said the food and drink sector is one of the largest manufacturing segments in the UK, Ireland and Italy.

“The consequences of contaminated or defective products pose serious challenges to companies operating in the sector.”

Vince Shiers, managing director of RQA Group, added that food and drink is one of the sectors most exposed to crisis conditions.

“Through this partnership, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions' clients will get immediate support in situations involving accidental product contamination, governmental recall, product extortion and malicious product-tampering.

“Our main focus, however, is on lowering the occurrence of such incidents.”
