INDIANAPOLIS – (Dec. 6, 2016) – While MJ Insurance is no stranger to the food industry, currently working with more than 60 clients in all aspects of the food supply chain, MJ is now enhancing its expertise to an industry vertical termed “Farm to Fork” that will assist clients in finding new ways to increase efficiency and profitability while ensuring risk is managed as well.
Due to the unique nature of the food industry, the risks – and the potential consequences of contamination – are serious. MJ’s Farm to Fork team specializes in assessing complex supply chains, providing crisis management for situations involving food-borne illness, facilitating product recalls, and developing loss prevention/mitigation strategies.
MJ Insurance’s proven work in the food industry has helped the nation’s top food producers, supply chain operators and retailers with comprehensive, data-driven strategies. MJ’s work in the industry is wide-ranging and guides clients through the entire process – from “planting time to dinner time.”
“The food industry has its own specialized set of risks and challenges,” said MJ Insurance President and Chief Operating Officer Jon Loftin. “MJ has a unique approach to working with clients in the food industry, making sure that the right processes are in place to keep our clients and their products safe and their procedures as risk free as possible.”
MJ’s food services expertise has been well-received by those in the industry. “With facilities now in four states, MJ has provided a tailored risk management strategy, and their consulting services have helped us control costs while managing a broad spectrum of risks in critical areas such as our supply-chain and workers’ compensation,” said Bob Ramsey, CFO of Richmond Baking Company in Richmond, Ind. “Managing these exposures and related insurance protection has a significant impact on our bottom line.”
MJ Insurance is a property-casualty and employee benefits agency that, since 1964, has grown from a two-person start-up to an agency with more than 145 employees in both Phoenix and Indianapolis.
