Vitamin and nutritional supplement manufacturers, importers, distributors and wholesalers have unique exposures due to the varying ingredients and use of the products. Third party bodily injury claims, judgements and defense costs can be financially devastating to a company. Having adequate general and product liability coverage is essential for those in this industry.
Companies selling both domestically and internationally have created additional exposures that need to be addressed. Will the policy only defend you in the United States or does it provide worldwide coverage?
