Union Nationale des Producteurs de Pommes de Terre – UNPT (French Association of Potato Producers) decided to invest in Meteo Protect solutions, an insurance and reinsurance brokerage firm having the largest team in Europe dedicated exclusively to weather risk management.

UNPT invests in a web platform provided by Meteo Protect allowing potato producers adhering to the UNPT to apply for a quotation for an insurance product adapted to its needs. The producers are free to customize each parameter insurance and can know in real time what the cost of this insurance would be.

The multiplication in frequency and intensity of weather hazards and the high price volatility are now a source of risk in terms of turnover or profitability for the potato producers, according to a press release.

UNPT, in a partnership with Meteo Protect, is the first agricultural trade union in France to offer its members a set of insurance solutions tailored to the needs of the industry.

The need to secure income and margins for producers and protecting their investments has become a major issue. This range of customizable insurances allows producers to guard against a weather risk well identified but also to secure their turnover.
