NFU Mutual Wessex are proud to be the communications partner of Dorset Food & Drink supporting their website and communication activities.
Through our partnership we will provide advice and expertise to its members using our exceptional knowledge on a wide range of Hospitality and Food & Drink businesses with the aim to help start-ups prosper and well-established companies thrive.
We understand and appreciate the issues in food & drink manufacturing such as production efficiency, security of supply, distribution, perishability and rising costs. There are also factors beyond your control: the impact of the obesity crisis and consequent sugar tax, call for salt reduction and healthier options.
In hospitality tourism is booming in the UK but no matter the size of your business, there is always a lot to think about when opening your doors to a customer. We understand these issues such as labour supply, VAT on tourism, ensuring good food hygiene, controlling your input costs, economic and trading uncertainties, the continued rise of online booking agencies and making your industry the ‘go to’ career for people.
There are health and safety issues too, as well as compliance with other rules and regulations. The things you need to consider seem endless.
But you’re not alone we can help plan for the unexpected and get you back on your feet should things go wrong.
Not only do we have a wealth of knowledge and experience in these industries and understand your sector, but we are on your doorstep to provide a local personal service through our specialist agencies.
