What pests to look out for

Mice and rats, flies and stored product insects are all major pests in the UK food production and preparation industry.  Ideally, you should have at least one member of staff who is familiar with pest management and knows the warning signs of an infestation. If not, we offer training in basic pest awareness that covers subjects like types of pest, legislation, prevention and how we control pests.

Affects of pest infestation

The impact on any business affected by a pest infestation can be huge; from loss of reputation to failed audits, non-compliance and financial loss.

Pests can damage property, infest stock and produce and cause you to fall foul of food safety regulations risking improvement notices and even prosecution.
