The health and safety of Hortica customers is our top priority. Hortica, a brand of the Sentry Insurance Group, is dedicated to supporting vital business activities during the COVID-19 pandemic with the high level of support and service expected by our customers.

That’s why we’ve launched a COVID-19 resource center.

This accessible, user-friendly resource hub provides guidance to help businesses continue planning, taking action, and understanding how to move forward during this time of unknowns. It’s designed to help horticulture businesses do their part to stop the spread of the virus and ensure they aren’t caught off guard when their attention is focused on other areas of their business operations.

“We’re here for you,” says Tim Noble, president - Hortica. “We’re committed and prepared to serve our customers while keeping people safe. Our team has instituted a number of measures to help ensure the health and safety of our associates, those we serve, and those they serve. We’re all in this together.”

  • Inspecting building systems
  • Adjusting daily operations
  • Managing employees who test positive for COVID-19 or show symptoms
  • Handling onsite visitors

Additionally, we have assembled safety guidelines and further resources to help customers and other horticultural businesses:

  • Assess COVID-19-related business FAQs
  • Update their travel policies
  • Strengthen physical and cyber security
