Agribusiness Alliance

Agribusiness has evolved over the past decade from traditional farms and livestock ranches to an industry ranging from family-run farms and vineyards to large industrial conglomerates using the latest scientific technology. As time progresses, the trick for farmers and businesspeople has been finding a policy that meets their rapidly expanding needs. In response to this, Zurich U.S. and The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. announced that they have formed a strategic Agribusiness Alliance to comarket their agribusiness products in a program designed to take advantage of each company's capabilities.
