Class Code: 8021

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 8021 applies to dealers principally engaged in the wholesale distribution of fresh and cured meat, fish or poultry. Some of these dealers cut the meat, fish or poultry into steaks, chops, roasts, fillets or poultry parts for sale to hotels, restaurants, clubs, hospitals, institutions and stores. Meat, fish or poultry dealers may also distribute a minor and incidental amount of other miscellaneous products such as groceries, dairy products, fresh fruits or vegetables.

Insureds engaged in the custom breaking of carcasses are assigned to Code 8021. The process involves the cutting of carcasses into primary and secondary cuts. While custom breakers may not be wholesale dealers in that their service is performed for wholesale dealers, they are assigned to Code 8021 as it is felt that their operations are analogous to operations contemplated by this code.
