At the primary production level we are keenly aware of the challenges that climate, disease and weather risks can have on profitability.

Standard coverages, including contingent business interruption coverage, are vital to managing situations outside your control but which could have a direct impact on your business.

HUB's resources are closely aligned with the industries in which we specialize. Trade credit and accounts receivable insurance are in high demand in this sector.  Trade credit is attractive to people in the industry because it provides peace of mind, delivers banking efficiencies and contributes to sales.  The value is even greater for businesses operating in the areas where the margin rate is lower than average.

Our mergers and acquisitions services are attractive to the food and beverage segment because of the amount of consolidation in the industry.  This pattern is likely to continue well into the future.
