Food and Agribusiness Protecting your business from farm to fork’. China is vast in territory, rich in natural resources and agricultural enterprises;however, China also suffers from a wide range of perils and natural disasters which directly impact agribusiness. Hindered by immature factories and poor infrastructure, the agribusiness is vulnerable to financial loss arising from damaged crops and supply chain disruption. Agriculture insurance helps to mitigate financial loss by providing a means to protect and reconstruct your agricultural facilities after a loss event.
In China, the entire country has implemented a governmentsubsidised agricultural insurance scheme where premium contributions are partially subsidised by government for certain crop and livestock insurances. Despite the government insurance scheme, the needs of large commercial farms are not fully satisfied; as the scheme is targeted to cover smaller farms in rural areas.
Large commercial farms require flexibility in their liability policies to protect the unique risks associated with flower nurseries, animal husbandry and aquatic breeding. These fast growing sectors are not insured within the governmentsubsidised programme, making tailored commercial agriculture insurance the preferred choice.
A tailored insurance policy and risk management strategy can assist in the sustainable development of an agricultural enterprise.
