Do I need insurance to sell candles?
In order to sell candles via retail or wholesale channels, you should obtain a General Liability policy for at least $5 million, but preferably $10 million or $20 million given today’s increasingly litigious society.
The policy should also include Products Liability to cover any third party property damage or personal injury arising from the products themselves. The stock of candles should also be insured for full replacement value in the event of fire, storm, theft etc.
Furthermore, any retailer with employees must take out Workers Compensation for their staff as a statutory requirement.
