Protecting your butchers business

Butchers insurance is designed to protect your butchers shop and those involved in running it, from staff to suppliers to customers. There are many risks associated with the profession; using knives and machinery and preparing and providing food means you need to take extra care to ensure everyone’s safety. But accidents happen when you least expect and having the right insurance can protect you against the unexpected.

Using machinery can be risky, and supplying food requires extra diligence and care. Insurance for butchers can cover a number of eventualities, from injury to weather events – all of which could impact your ability to trade. The right butchers insurance policy can safeguard your livelihood to let you work without worry. You never know what is around the corner, so shop insurance should be a fundamental part of your business plan to ensure business continuity, should something unfortunate happen.

Butchers shop insurance

Your buildings, contents, machinery, equipment and stock can all be covered against property damage, and insured against perils such as fire, flood, theft, storm damage and much more. We can even arrange cover to protect your business contents away from your retail premises.

Many butchers have cold stores and walk in fridges or freezers with large amounts of stock, particularly at busier times of year. When Christmas comes you may find yourself needing more cover. We can arrange butcher insurance that includes both deterioration of stock cover following a freezer breakdown as well as a  seasonal increase on your stock insurance, so you don’t need to worry about adjusting your cover, it’s there in case you need it.

Butchers liability insurance

Liability insurance is essential for protecting your financial interests should anything happen to your clients and staff, and any other visitors to your premises. For instance, public liability insurance can protect you if you accidentally gave a customer food poisoning. Employers' liability cover can protect you if a member of staff accidentally injures themselves at work, for example, while using machinery. Both of these covers can be combined into one easy to buy butchers insurance policy.

Business interruption insurance for butchers

Business interruption cover can protect your livelihood if you suffer damage at your premises meaning you are unable to trade. So if you had a fire or flood that could take a few months to rectify, business interruption will typically cover your loss of profit, pay your staff wages and fixed business expenses and can help you trade temporarily from another premises while you get back on your feet.

"I’ve used Premierline for my work insurance for a few years now. They always find me such competitive prices. As a small business owner I really couldn’t afford the prices when I looked online myself especially after having had no work for 7 weeks when Covid-19 first hit. So it was a huge relief to find a policy I could afford and be ready for when work started to pour in."

Mrs Bridger, Cleaning Contractor, Devon (Customer since April 2017)

"I rang Premierline just to check other insurance offers, after my sky high renewal from my previous insurer. The adviser was friendly and very easy to understand and talk to and he got me a fantastic deal. Very happy.”

Mrs McCall, Pet Shop, North Shields (Customer since January 2021)

"Overall, Premierline offered a great service in securing my annual Professional Indemnity insurance. It was a very simple process and everything was explained well."
