In the past six months, the outer packaging of frozen products has frequently been tested positive for the new coronavirus. Once cold-chain food is tested positive for the new coronavirus, it must be accepted as required. The relevant purchasers will inevitably suffer losses due to the harm treatment, which can be a disaster for these companies.
In order to reduce the risk of epidemics that companies may face in the process of purchasing cold chain food, Ningbo recently launched the country’s first”cold chain food harmless disposal insurance”. Purchasers are officially included in the scope of insurance related to epidemic prevention.
The insurance coverage of this type of insurance is for companies engaged in cold chain food procurement, which is an independent insurance project, and the premium is 500 yuan/container. Once the cold chain food purchased by the insured is harmless due to a positive nucleic acid test, the relevant department can make claims to the insurance company as agreed and receive a certain amount of financial compensation, up to a maximum of 300,000 yuan. This insurance is Ningbo’s second innovation on the basis of the original”Imported Cold Chain Epidemic Prevention Comprehensive Insurance”, which has realized the extension of the cold chain food risk protection field.
