Food Safety Pest Control Explained

Posted on: June 7, 2019, in Blog

Truthfully, every company will have a pest control issue at some point. Our temperatures are increasing and general environmental factors have changed, meaning the risk levels are high than ever. This is even more concerning if your company deals with food. When running a food related business, there is always a certain level of cleanliness that needs to be adhered to. Ensuring the products you offer are of the highest quality is the best way to attract repeat customers. Beyond all this, there are certain legal requirements regarding food safety that must be ensured.

Food related businesses have a legal obligation to ensure their products and packaging are pest free and therefore require a higher level of pest service standard. This type of service is called HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) and is based on Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).

Companies adhering to HACCP have external auditors that arrive on site to check the food safety at their premises, including monitoring logs, trend analyses, pesticide usage logs, material safety data sheets, pest management protocols, service reports and more. Some examples of business’s requiring pest management to HACCP standards are food producers, food retailers, food packaging manufacturers, food warehousing, even food transport companies.

If your company falls under the above category, you will require professional services by a reliable pest control company. This is where Service Master can assist.
