Restaurant Recovery

Cover your business expenses and losses as a result of an Adverse Publicity, Accidental Contamination, Supplier Contamination, or Malicious Tampering (including Product Extortion) event.


This policy is designed to protect the most valuable asset of restaurants and food service vendors alike; their brand and the reputation of the products they sell. Accidental contamination, adverse publicity (including allegations), or malicious tampering of ingestible products in the restaurant industry causes millions of lost revenues a year. If your restaurant or food/beverage vendor establishment experiences a foodborne illness incident or adverse publicity alleging one, how would you handle the situation? Every move you make will be critical to re-establishing your customers' confidence as well as complying with government agencies to allow your doors to stay open.
