Genuine Jersey Sponsorship

Genuine Jersey Sponsorship

Islands Sponsorship Support of Local Farmers and Producers

Islands Insurance has always maintained close links with the farming, fishing, tourism and hospitality sectors and we are proud sponsors of Genuine Jersey. 

We feel it is a great opportunity for us as a company to support both our local community and help small, local businesses by offering them bespoke, discounted insurance solutions and sponsorship of the regular Farm and Craft Markets at St Aubin throughout the year.  We feel our aims and objectives as a company are closely aligned with those of Genuine Jersey in providing the required support, encouragement and the opportunity for our local businesses to grow and thrive.  The benefits of buying Genuine Jersey goods are clear: supporting local producers and the economy and reducing food miles helps protect the environment. 

As a sponsor, we offer subsidised insurance cover tailored to the needs of all Genuine Jersey members who also benefit from the backing of NFU Mutual, our parent company, the leading insurer for the UK rural community. This allows us to provide a range of bespoke insurance solutions specifically designed for farmers and growers, and the tourism and hospitality sectors.  In addition to our support for Genuine Jersey, we also sponsor the Junior Section of the Spring and Autumn Cattle Shows run by the Royal Jersey Agricultural and Horticultural Society (RJA&HS) and the Islands Insurance (RJA&HS) On Farm Challenge which was introduced in 2014.  This is open to all milk producing herds in Jersey and allows local cattle breeders to exhibit the best of their herd for independent judging in their home environment.

John Garton, Chief Executive of Genuine Jersey, says ‘Obtaining adequate insurance is  a significant cost for start-up businesses on a small budget and that having affordable access to a collective insurance scheme offered by Islands Insurance gives members peace of mind and allows them to focus on marketing and selling the products, and developing their particular passion and new enterprise. 

‘Genuine Jersey aims to facilitate the success of its members; providing them with advice, assistance and help, removing barriers to doing business. The support we have had from Islands Insurance over the last eight years has been key in helping us grow our membership and its success has meant Genuine Jersey is now looking at how we can develop mutual beneficial relationships with other local businesses and service providers.’
