Are you looking for butchers insurance?

The Retail Mutual offers a wide range of butchers cover options to suit your needs including:

  • Public liability cover – protects you in the event that a customer or member of the public brings a claim against you for an injury suffered on your premises, for instance from slipping or tripping on your shop floor
  • Employer’s liability cover – if you employ anyone in your butchers shop, even on a part-time or casual basis, you are required by law to have employer’s liability cover
  • Business interruption cover – this will help to keep your butchers business afloat if an incident occurs that temporarily prevents you from trading. It can cover loss of profit, loss of employees’ earnings and even help with interim payments prior to final settlement of your claim
  • Buildings cover – if you own your butchers premises you will need to ensure you have adequate buildings cover
  • Fixtures and fittings cover – with refrigeration equipment as well as shelving and display units, you will want to be sure your fixtures and fittings are suitably covered
  • Stock cover – gives you peace of mind that your stock is covered both on your premises and when in transit
  • Accidental damage cover – takes care of those incidents that simply can’t be helped
