The Hollard Insurance Company Ltd is South Africa’s largest independent and privately owned insurance group; in only four decades, it has grown to become an Afro-global insurance brand, operating in nine countries across Africa and Asia.
Hollard Agri, a specialist team in Hollard Insure, the group’s short-term insurance arm, is a leading provider of innovative, fit-for-purpose agricultural insurance products that cover every aspect of the modern farmer’s needs.
Purpose and culture
Hollard’s purpose is to enable more people to create and secure a better future.
By achieving exceptional, sustainable and inclusive growth; by partnering to deliver the win-win-win; by treating everyone with care and dignity; by courageously pursuing a better way; and by acting as a catalyst for positive and enduring change, we will be the favourite insurer in each country in which we operate.
Of course, none of this can be achieved without a supportive culture. And our culture, which we call the Hollard Way, is something that we’re passionate about and something that every Hollardite lives every day.
The Hollard Way asks us to balance the need to deliver and get things done, with the need to dream, pioneer and experiment. It recognises that we are one big team, made up of real and mindful individuals. It encourages us to find the win-win-win for Hollard, our partners and our customers, and to get the balance right for ourselves. It asks that we get the facts, but listen to our gut. Perhaps most demandingly of all, it asks us to take what we do seriously without taking ourselves too seriously.
As a result of all of this, as a Hollard customer you can expect to be treated with respect, dignity and above all, a sense of common humanity. We expect to be held to the highest standards and whilst we certainly can’t claim to always get it right, we try our absolute best to deliver on your expectations
Whether small and independent or a major commercial operation, as a farmer you are exposed to risk. Your needs will be as unique as you and the challenges you face every day are. Our Agri policy takes care of your individual needs and includes covering risks associated with cooperative and estate wine cellars, fresh produce packaging and cooling plants, liability, exports, products guarantee, plastic tunnels, poultry, warehouse liability and many more. It also covers personal insurance requirements for you, the farmer – one of the most important assets of any farming business.
As agriculture becomes progressively more sophisticated, so do the complexities of protecting against the risks involved and farmers should rely more heavily on the professional analysis and insight of a trusted broker when it comes to protecting assets.
Using a product that combines the personal, business and agricultural insurance needs on a single platform makes sense. Our specialist Agricultural product provides cover for (amongst other things)
Death of livestock, or pedigreed animals, due to fire, lightning, violent accident, freezing, transit or attack by a wild animal. With pedigreed animals this cover can be extended to include various illnesses, transit, showing of animals and impotence.
Many other benefits are available. These include (but are not limited to):
- Loss of crop and stacks (fire and lightning only)
- Loss of or damage to assets, including farm buildings, machinery, equipment warehouses, offices, production facilities, cellars, packing and cooling plants, poultry (contract growers) and plastic tunnels. Guesthouses and game (fire and lightning only) can also be added
- Accidental damage of wine and wine tanks
- Storage and transportation of livestock and fresh produce (excluding cartage contracting)
- Vehicles, farm implements and irrigation systems on wheels
- Loss or damage to personal property (residential buildings, contents, personal effects, computers and cellphones).
Make sure your broker insures you with the insurer committed to ensuring a better future for all.
Legal compensation for liability due to the accidental death or injury of a third party. General liability, property owners’ liability, products liability, work away, crop spraying, animals and spread of fire, with extensions for spread of fire to plantations, warehouseman liability, product recall and/or guarantee (contractual), guesthouses, fire extinguishing charges, water bombing costs and breakage of dam walls all being available.
