This all day (6 hour) visit to G’s will offer a behind the scenes look at their operations. G’s supplies customers and consumers across the UK, Europe and North America with a wide range of crop vegetables. G’s supplies all sectors of the food industry with quality fresh produce, which ranges from own-label salads and vegetables for supermarket customers across Europe, to G’s brand product for the independent wholesale, food service and food manufacturing sectors.

The visit will be hosted by G’s, commences at Barway and will include visiting a number of different crop sites in the area. The aim of the visit is to demonstrate how a modern UK agricultural producer operates and the insurance aspects related to that.

During the visit attendees will observe how G’s implement its objective of sustainable intensification of its farms while combining biodiversity and farming to ensure higher yields with a lower impact on the environment. The visit will look at how insurance contributes to this with reference to what coverage is needed and provide examples and explanations of typical insurance claims.

During the visit members will gain an insight into:

• Operations at G’s
• An understanding of the insurance related issues that face a UK farming producer
• An understanding of how insurance protects or reduces the risk of these issues
