Pest control for the food industry
Pest management plans for restaurants and food processing
A pest control issue at a restaurant, food retail, production or food processing business can be highly damaging. Food legislation has increased over the years, and under law, as a food business, you must be able to show that you have taken every possible step to prevent the damage and risks caused by pests in storage and preparation areas.
Food businesses need to have pest-proofing already in place to prevent and limit access to buildings. Measures that need to be explored include fly screens, pest-proofing with wire wool, bristle strips, mesh, foam and PVC plates. All are important to control the risk posed by pests within the food industry, and our experienced team can offer proactive management plans to reduce food safety risks and help you stay legally compliant.
