Australian Meat Industry Council (AMIC) Victoria

Arthur J. Gallagher is making meat industry insurance simple through its partnership with the Australian Meat Industry Council (AMIC) in Victoria.

The vast majority of AMIC members are small business owners. That can mean long hours and a never-ending stream of issues to deal with to help your customers, manage your staff and protect your livelihood. At Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG), we salute everyone who runs a small business as one of Australia's great unsung heroes, doing their best for their families, their customers and their communities.

Our aim is to support your business and help you progress through tailored insurance solutions and reliable advice on how to plan for the unexpected. We know insurance isn't always front of mind for busy business owners. But getting the right cover is crucial for any business that wants to survive and thrive. When it comes to meat industry insurance, our SmartProtect | Business solution is a cut above. It's a great fit for AMIC members, and it's exclusively available through AJG.

Designed specifically to address a range of risks and challenges that keep SME business owners awake at night, SmartProtect includes comprehensive cover for loss of stock and contents; business income protection; machinery breakdown; theft; public liability; and much more.

In short, SmartProtect is an insurance product designed to really respond when something goes wrong.
