I was trying to think of something to write with a Thanksgiving theme this week, but to also tie it into insurance. My first thought was to write a story about a turkey having trouble getting life insurance around Thanksgiving. It was a cute idea, but, to be totally honest, the creative juices just weren’t flowing.
Did you know, however, that turkey insurance is a real thing? Well, poultry insurance is, anyway.
Poultry is big business in this country, and as with any business there are risks involved. Health and weather are two common factors that can affect birds. Poultry insurance covers the death of birds, removal, power and mechanical problems and loss of income from egg or meat.
One of the cool things about providing business insurance to a wide variety of industries is seeing just how many businesses are out there that you probably don’t ever really think about. You know those candles you blow on at your birthday that don’t go out? There are manufacturers out there for that. And did you know that nuclear power plant waste is stored in very special containers? Yes, there’s a whole industry devoted to that too. There’s just so much out there, and every business has different insurance needs.
Even the turkey industry.
And on that note, from the ALLCHOICE Insurance family to yours, we hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
