The Nutraceutical Dietary Supplement business is a booming industry. Every year hundreds of new Dietary Supplements & Nutraceutical products come to market. For these to reach their full sales potential, many need to appear in retail markets, be added to web stores or be offered on television. In order to do so or be properly protected from claims and suits Nutraceutical Dietary Supplement manufacturers need Product Liability Insurance.
Below are some top industries who should acquire a dietary supplement insurance policy:
Not for us. Product Liability for food products is typically simple to obtain, however the Nutraceutical Dietary Supplement market is much smaller and many insurance carriers will not write Product Insurance for Dietary Products, Supplements or Nutraceuticals. However our long list of carriers gives us access to Product Liability Markets many other brokers do not have access to.
Anyone that is responsible for the design, manufacture, sale or distribution of a component or end user product. This applies to any business or individual that manufactures his own product or even if the product’s manufacturing is subcontracted out b another operation, even if the operation is overseas.
Although we are typically asked this question, there is typically no “out of the box” price for the cost of insurance for a dietary supplement manufacturer or distributor. Several factors come into play with regards to rating, such as; the nature of the product, and the annual sales volume. Minimum Premiums usually start at $3,000 for most states.
Products liability insurance costs for Nutraceutical Dietary Supplements are much like any other liability insurance product. There no real average rate because they are based on the specific type of product you manufacture, retail or market. There are some products that pose very little potential to cause harm or damage and there are others that have a higher propensity to be risky, and therefore carry higher premiums.
The amount of coverage required can vary, important factors to consider when shopping product liability insurance limits are: How much coverage do my vendors require me to have to stock my product? What do I stand to lose if our Nutritional Supplement company is sued? Because claims or allegations against supplement manufacturers can be severe or deadly, you may want to discuss your insurance requirements with vendors or an attorney before making any decisions.
