Company profile

The Berufsgenossenschaft Nahrungsmittel und Gastgewerbe (BGN) is the statutory accident insurance for around 3.4 million insured persons in over 400,000 companies in the food and beverage industry, the hotel and restaurant trade, the bakery and confectionery trades, the meat industry, the tobacco industry and showman and circus companies.

All employees in these companies are insured by law with BGN for accidents at work and occupational diseases. Entrepreneurs and their spouses from companies in the meat industry who work for the company without an employment contract are also insured by virtue of the articles of association. Entrepreneurs and their spouses from other sectors within BGN's area of responsibility who work for the company without an employment contract may take out voluntary insurance.

Comprehensive support and security for our members

In the event of an accident at work or occupational disease, we help those affected to restore their health and manpower by all appropriate means. We take over the medical treatment, supply with aids, assistance for the preservation/attainment of a job. Financial security is also provided for.

BGN self-administration: those affected decide for themselves

The success of the work of the employers' liability insurance association is based on self-administration. This means that the fate of BGN is in the hands of those who know what it is all about. Representatives of employers and employees from the BGN member companies form the self-government with equal representation. Professional and practical solutions to problems for the benefit of policyholders and entrepreneurs are the goal of the social partners in their work on the Executive Board and at the Representatives' Meeting. The result: Efficient structures with industry- and demand-oriented services.
