Safire became directly involved with sugar cane fire insurance as a result of our responding to the requirements of our farming clients. We offer basic or extended cover as follows:
- Mill closure only (covers loss of cane whilst in-field only if a loss occurs whilst mills are closed for the annual shutdown period)
- Standard tonnage (covers loss of cane whilst in-field at the time of the loss only and no compensation for further loss of profits/growth)
- Mature stage extension (covers loss of cane whilst in-field at the time of the loss plus compensation for future loss of profits/growth)
Such extended cover combined with further extensions such as aerial bombing, harvesting and transport costs are unique to the Safire offering and allow the client to decide on what level of cover and self insurance best suits their particular risk profile.
