The start of the summer musical festival season is nearly upon us and that means that many mobile catering units will be in use to cater for people’s hunger, but one of the leading takeaway insurance brokers is warning owners and operators not to skimp on their takeaway insurance.

The summer is a busy time for mobile catering units, as music festivals, and thousands of other seasonal events which take place throughout the country during the warm weather, need catering facilities. And Titan Takeaway Insurance is worried that some operators, maybe through ignorance rather than malice, don’t realise the level of cover they need when offering the public food.

Chief Executive Officer of Titan Takeaway Insurance, Basil Tsapralis, said:
“Most of the huge event organisers insist that all their outside suppliers such as mobile catering units have the necessary levels of cover. But what concerns us is the large number of smaller events which are perhaps not so well organised and might not make all the checks that they should to ensure that suppliers have the necessary paperwork and insurance.

“So we’re reminding all event organisers, and mobile takeaway food units, to check all the paperwork and just make sure that everyone has the necessary level of insurance cover. Whether a mobile caterer is selling to a dozen, or thousands, adequate cover is needed for all the problems that can crop up when selling food.”

Titan Takeaway Insurance is one of the largest providers of this type of specialised insurance in the UK and represents food businesses based throughout the UK.
