If there is a hair in the butter, recall the butter

When products need to be recalled, you have a recall insurance needed to cover these costs. Because they add up fast.

Think about:

  • search costs
  • research and take out
  • replacement cost
  • destruction costs

With the complexity of production chains and logistics, as well as increasing laws and regulations, companies face an increased risk of product recalls. The laundry list of costs associated with a recall are endless.

With the right insurance, this need not mean the end of your business.

Why do I need contamination insurance?

Recall, a step backwards for your reputation?

After all the complex steps to bring a product to market, it is surprisingly easy to undo all that hard work.

Negative reports about your product and company spread like wildfire. This does considerable damage to your corporate image. Regaining consumer confidence is no easy task.

Product liability insurance does not cover recall costs

Think loss of revenue, reputation restoration, product relaunch, research costs, storage costs, destruction costs, transportation costs, and more.

These costs can quickly add up to several hundred thousand euros. Get your stick with contamination insurance.

Innovation deserves encouragement

With the security of recall insurance, your company dares to take risks and develop innovative products. Because you are protected against possible recalls.

What does recall insurance cover?

Moreover, it also covers, among other things:

  • gross profit loss
  • repair costs for your image with customers and distributors
  • analysis costs
