Beazley launches innovative insurance solution for nutraceutical risks in Canada

Toronto, July 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Specialist insurer Beazley has launched its nutraceutical focused insurance product NutraGuard in Canada.

NutraGuard provides a dedicated insurance form customized for nutraceutical manufacturers and distributors with the flexibility to cover products liability, general liability, errors and omissions (E&O), product recall expense, employee benefits liability and hired/non-owned auto insurance. Coverage is available to companies active at all points of the nutraceutical value chain, from ingredient producers to product manufacturers to wholesale/retail distributors.

Derek Dow, Beazley healthcare underwriter, said: "With the Canadian nutraceuticals market expected to witness a growth rate of over 5% by 2024*, we see a gap within the insurance market for a policy tailored to the precise needs of this burgeoning market. Beazley NutraGuard offers a solution that responds to the wide variety of exposures that companies in this industry confront."

Evan Smith, Head of Miscellaneous Medical & Life Sciences at Beazley, said: "The expansion of our healthcare and life sciences offerings in Canada speaks volumes to the growth potential we see in this specialized insurance solution for businesses operating in the nutraceutical space. Beazley NutraGuard offers our clients a unique policy form that provides seamless coverage for the risks they face."

Beazley brings solid experience and understanding of the nutraceutical market having first launched NutraGuard in the US seven years ago.
