Pest Control for Food Production & Distribution Businesses

Food Production and Distribution

The presence of pests in food manufacturing and preparation areas has always been unacceptable.

The risks posed by pests include:

  • The spread of pathogens that can cause
  • Damage to property
  • Contamination of work surfaces, manufacturing equipment, foodstuffs and product
  • Adverse public opinion and loss of reputation
  • Prosecution leading to large fines and even forced closure
  • Poor staff relations, breaches of Health and Safety legislation
