Frequently asked questions

One of the greatest risks in the Australian retail meat sector is property damage from highly flammable materials, such as expanded polystyrene (EPS) panels.  

You may also face accidental damage to goods stored in cold storage spaces, especially during peak demand seasons. And if you operate a retail butcher business, you may face third-party injury or property damage allegations – which could mean hefty legal fees. 

We offer all AMIC members a comprehensive business insurance package, which includes cover for:

  • Property (including contents and stock)

  • Business interruption

  • Public and products liability

  • Theft

  • Machinery breakdown.

We also offer workers compensation services and other insurance solutions such as cyber, commercial motor vehicle and goods-in-transit.
