Food Processing Pest Control
pest control requirements for food industry
Pest problems have been a major concern for food and beverage processing businesses in New York. Pests such as rodents, bed bugs, and cockroaches, among others do not only put your business at risk of license withdrawal but also have adverse effects on its economic status and reputation.
Just like other places, the food and beverage industry in New York requires businesses under its umbrella to shun pests in their processing plants to avoid food contamination.
On that note, the operators of the businesses are expected to take effective pest control measures for the sake of hygiene and keep adequate documentation on the steps they’ve taken towards pest management at their work premises.
The Effects of Pests
In businesses dealing with the processing and handling of food and beverages, pests contribute to the transmission of an array of diseases causing viruses and bacteria.
The excreta, fur, feathers, body parts as well as the nesting materials of the bugs that invade these places also lead to physical contamination of the raw materials and the finished products produced by the food and beverage processing plants.
For that reason, if you have or run such a business, you should strive to make it pest-free. This is not only for the sake of passing the relevant regulatory requirements but also for the safety of your employees and clients from some if not all of the pest-related diseases.
Failure to take effective measures to prevent pests and control them in your food and beverage processing plant may also cost you huge losses. To start with, the contamination of raw materials or the finished products is not only a health risk but can also have negative effects on your sales revenues as customers will shy away from buying a product which they suspect or prove to be unhygienic.
Besides, some pests like rodents destroy the packaging of your products or supplies, leading to further losses. The worst happens when inspectors find that your business doesn’t comply with the set legal pest management requirements and decide to withdraw its operating license.
