Pest Control for Food Production Facilities
A lot of food businesses come to us after failing an audit or having an ongoing pest issue (that would cause a non-compliance) simply because their current pest control company wasn’t able to do the job properly.
We understand the specific requirements for pest management in food production facilities. We work closely with Food Safety Managers to ensure both parties meet food safety standards and mitigate any risks of a pest infestation into the future.
Our Pest Management Plan for Food Industry Businesses:
- Conduct a thorough inspection of your site using our unique Detailed Pest Assessment (DPA) method and discuss with you any site-specific risks and challenges
- Design an Integrated Pest Management plan to support the business’s Food Safety Program which will detail the systematic implementation of a combination of the safest, effective processes and methods for pest prevention, monitoring and control
- Provide a quality service using products, chemicals, equipment, and procedures that meet with safety standards and site requirements
- Provide training to site staff
- Measure and report effectiveness i.e., service reports, problems solved and progress etc
- Build a long-term relationship through frequent two-way communication and training
Integrated Pest Management Plan (IPM)
Suburban Pest Management recommends implementing an integrated pest management plan or IPM, which is a preventative, long-term solution. While an IPM requires a coordinated effort to implement properly, our on-site monitoring and reporting services provide effective pest control solutions. An IPM:
- Reduces the amount of chemicals used around employees and customers
- Reduces the risk of the deterioration of buildings and other assets from the use of chemicals
- Seeks to understand the pest species and numbers present at a site
- Allows for greater control over and knowledge of pest activity.
Rather than be surprised by a pest infestation, electronic pest monitoring stations and reporting allows you to proactively assess and address pest control in your facility with time-sensitive solutions.
Our pest control solutions include an online customer portal, electronic pest monitoring stations and an onsite folder that contains all the information you need for an integrated pest management plan that focuses on prevention, early detection and control.
Cafe and Restaurant Pest Control
Restaurants and cafes, just like all food production facilities, need to adhere to strict sanitation standards. That means no trace of pest contamination on any inspectors’ reports.
So, the question is, how can you make sure your restaurant premises completely pest-free?
The answer? The food safety standards still apply, and the process is the same as for food manufacturing, albeit potentially a little less complex. We would develop a commercial pest management programme that takes a proactive approach. First, we’ll inspect your facility to see if you have an active infestation. Then, we’ll either treat the infestation or recommend a pest preventative programme. Either way, we’ll check to make sure that your place is pest-free for as long as we service it.
HACCP (FOOD SAFETY) AND ISO9001 Certified
We have a HACCP (FOOD SAFETY) system in place and have met the requirements for provision of pest control management services for food processing, manufacturing, and food handling facilities.
