How we help AFT members

In Worcestershire and further afield Checketts is a name synonymous with high quality artisan food. Similarly in the field of risk management and insurance, the name Checketts is linked with a detailed understanding of the risks to small food businesses and with helping those businesses find effective solutions to insurance problems.

Small food businesses are vulnerable to large claims that can wipe them out. These claims could arise from areas such as products liabilityfreezer breakdowncomputer virus or the ability to cope with business interruption. These risks need sympathetic and informed management from insurance professionals who know the food industry.
