Is Your Client's Company at Risk?
Any entity serving food, from restaurants to hospitality industries to cafeterias to food trucks, are at risk. They are held to a higher standard of care by the health departments and face unique exposures that other businesses do not due to their daily handling and serving of food to the public. Whether it’s actual or alleged, having one of these food borne illnesses within the settings can have a negative impact by decreased customers, revenues and reputation.

What is Trade Name Restoration (TNR)?
TNR is the brand name of an insurance product pioneered by PLIS in 1998. This insurance provides restaurants & hospitality industries reimbursement of loss of business income and extra expenses that are incurred by the establishment, following an accidental or malicious contamination or food borne illness, such as Hepatitis A, E. coli, Salmonella, Shigella, Norovirus, Listeria, etc. These are considered to be food borne illness pathogens, which when transmitted through food and consumed, can cause people to become ill.
