Food Industry Pest Control

Food Industry

The food and drink industry contributes £28.8 billion to the UK economy, it employs 400,000 people, and 97% of businesses in the sector are small to medium enterprises. So imagine a situation where you have an infestation of pests that could potentially get into your products, make your customers ill and damage your reputation. It would be catastrophic. 


Why do you need pest control?

Insects, rodents and birds can contaminate food and work surfaces with their urine, droppings and hairs. These contain potentially harmful pathogens that can spread diseases like E. coli and Salmonella. Whole batches of food can be destroyed, rejected by quality control, or recalled if contamination is found. 


Compliance with the law

You need to protect your business from pests so that you meet your requirements under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, the Food Safety Act 1990 and the Food Hygiene (England) Regulations 2006. Failure to comply often results in prosecution and hefty fines, and your reputation might not recover.
