Focusing on industry-specific needs, Marsh Canada’s Agriculture Practice provides customized client solutions.
Natural catastrophes, environmental exposures, supply chain interruption, high production costs. The list of risks agricultural businesses face is long and growing.
Having invested in productivity to compete in the global marketplace, Canadian agriculture firms have considerable property assets — which means significant exposures. Managing such an array of complex and interconnected risks requires experts who understand your industry — and the unique needs of your business.
Marsh Canada’s dedicated Agriculture Industry Practice provides advisory and transactional services to dairy, feed/seed/grain, horticulture (including greenhouse growers of edible and non-edible produce), poultry and egg producers, and red meat producers. Working with you, we understand your appetite for risk and develop solutions that meet your unique needs.
Risk Management Alliance
The Risk Management Alliance (RMA) provides qualified members with the highest standards for outsourced risk management. The RMA model is specifically designed to meet the needs of its elite agriculture and food production membership. The program is founded on a collaborative approach to risk management, attracting best-in-class agriculture and food production companies from across Canada.
To address the risks unique to greenhouse spaces, Marsh has teamed up with N.V. Hagelunie, a leading Dutch horticultural insurer, to offer a range of services to greenhouse businesses. Through Marsh’s innovative programs and Hagelunie’s horticulture underwriting experience, Canadian growers can now access greenhouse insurance knowledge and technical support that has not been readily available in the past.
Beyond standard risk transfer services, Marsh provides agriculture clients with a gap analysis that benchmarks their operations against “best-in-class.” AgriGap provides a holistic view of the operation including analysis on operational hazards, site facilities/construction, risk management planning and control systems, health and safety, biohazard programs, property protection, security, site services, environmental and natural hazards.
Marsh will identify areas for improvement, recommends solutions, and assists in their implementation.
