Together with large industrial British groups of the meat industry, AGIS Sas has developed a significant expertise in the field of insurance of production and processed meat.
Our business covers any slaughterhouse insurance, which companies are today tightly controlled because of unprofessional practices of some operators.
Slaughterhouses often comprise meat processing units or contract the meat processing to geographically close meat processors. They perform the cutting, packing, vacuum sealing and freezing activities.
All meat processors produce meat cuts. It is an intermediate product made up of muscles, fat, and connective tissue, from carcass cutting and boning. The cuts are part of the production such as minced meat, sausage products or industrial cooked meal.
Meat processors with industrial equipment perform meat canning for meat (corned beef, luncheon meat) or prepare vacuum sealed or frozen cooked meals.
These activities generate human risks, work place accidents cuts as well as liability risk (poisoning and pollution, fraud relating to the product ingredients).
Here is a story illustrating the entire slaughterhouse process:
Slaughterhouses generate quite substantial pollution risks as well as risks related to the cold-chain system and the consequences of any breakdown. We therefore had to cover a number of meat warehouses including EEC intervention warehouses.
These activities naturally led us to insure international refrigerated road transport, a challenging activity in the Italian peninsula, the former Yugoslavia and Bulgaria, heavy consumers of French calves and pigs. Unfortunately mafia’s activities can be devastating.
We have implemented innovative and creative solutions to drastically reduce high risks of freight diversion or even whole trucks diversion in these areas.
Our risk management, comparable to risks of war, allows us to quickly respond and place this activity for which traditional insurers rightfully demonstrate little appetite.
