Our Complimentary Product Recall Cost Estimator ToolCalculate your risk now
Comprehensive, innovative risk solutions and services for product recall exposures.
The number and magnitude of product recalls has increased significantly in recent years. In New Zealand, there are an average of two recalls announced every month* – and there are many more that do not become public knowledge. As well as recall costs, product contaminations can cost millions in lost profits, decontamination, manufacturing delays and more, and damage to brand reputation can have a large impact on future earnings.
We have nearly 40 years’ experience helping customers around the world to manage their recall risk. We offer strong, customised covers essential to respond to product contaminations efficiently and effectively, getting your business back to business as quickly as possible.
