Food processing facilities provide plenty of resources needed for survival—such as shelter, water, ideal temperatures, and food—so they will always be prone to pests. Because pest management accounts for a substantial portion of your facility’s total score for a food-safety audit, it’s important to be ready for anything your auditor will be looking for. Managing a food facility is already a demanding job, and you don’t want to fail an audit due to avoidable pest issues.
In this special collection, we bring together informative articles from Orkin and Food Quality & Safety that detail steps you’ll need to employ year-round to keep your products safe. You’ll learn how to monitor and track pests in your facility, how to be audit ready at any time, and how pests are seasonal and what to expect throughout the year.
This series of important articles will serve as a useful resource for your food facility when it comes to pest management and, ultimately, help you be proactive about pest control and uphold food safety regulations that will protect your business.
