After a bit of a fraught year, I'm finally sorting out the last bits and pieces to bring my larder / coldroom up to scratch, sort out my HACCAP plans and register as a food business operator with the very helpful Herefordshire Council. This isn't really as a commercial enterprise, given I will only process around 30-40 carcasses a year at most - it's more for my own entertainment and to enable me to legitimately supply processed venision to a limited number of paying customers.
My question is, even if I'm only slightly extending from supplying friends and family (that is, people unlikely to sue me), it seems sensible in these litigious times to have some form of liability insurance in case I screw up and inadvertently cause a food poisoning outbreak , so what do you guys running similar micro-enterprises do for liability cover? I vaguely recall reading recently, possibly on here, that someone had difficulty finding affordable cover because they were the 'primary source' of the venison, i.e. shooting it themselves.
Where should I look and what should I expect to pay for a one man, part time, trained-hunter-exemption operation in environmental health approved premises? PM me if you don't want to talk about business costs on the open forum, as I could really do with a steer.
