Owning or operating a grocery store is full of challenges. From the thousands of dollars in cash passing through tills, to the new employee operating the deli slicer or the cleanup in aisle three, there's no lack of potential for disaster.

Risk management is what we do at Federated Insurance and, having grown our expertise in grocery stores, we are pleased to launch our exclusive Grocery Store Advantage program.

Our Grocery Store Advantage combines Federated Insurance’s famed knowledgeable service, client focus, and range of customizable insurance products to provide perhaps the most comprehensive risk management program the grocery store industry has seen to date.

"We’re so excited about sharing this new program with Grocery Stores across Canada," says Federated Insurance President John Paisley. "We are committed to giving Grocery Store owners and operators our very best to help them manage their risks and succeed long-term."

A few of the innovative offerings we have that are specific to Grocery Stores include Product Recall, Contamination, and Infestation coverage, and our industry-leading Transit, Computerized Equipment, and Equipment Breakdown coverage have been tailored to meet a Grocery Stores' unique needs.

As well, a comprehensive RiskWise® safety program will be launched for Grocery Stores early this year, offering an invaluable set of tools and resources to help Grocery Store owners improve safety for employees and customers and save money. After all, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of coin."
