Crisis management: product recall and contamination expertise
Aon's product recall and contamination team combines prevention, planning, risk transfer and response to ensure you can react quickly and effectively in the event of a crisis – protecting the integrity of your brand.
The impact of a product recall can break a food and drink business, destroying hard earned reputation in days or even hours. It's a risk that is an intrinsic part of the sector and is constantly changing as supply chains and methods of communications develop.
Our unique, consultative approach helps you quantify and qualify your exposure to the threats of product recall or product contamination, and helps ensure you have a robust and comprehensive strategy around risk retention, mitigation, transfer and management.
