Food Safety for Your Business

Business Impact of Food Safety

Every year, there are dozens of reported cases of businesses suffering the indignity and embarrassment — and the costly economic impacts — of pest infestations.

From a restaurant whose business was suspended after the discovery of a cockroach infestation, to a food retail store forced to close for a period due to inadequate mice prevention measures, which caused an infestation and contamination of food — businesses dealing with food have to be constantly on their guard.

Food Safety Insights

A key factor to consider in the response to pest infestation is whether or not a business operates in an industry that is subject to food safety and hygiene legislation requiring pest control.

Where food is a core part of the business (food retailing, food manufacturing, distributing food and beverages) and/or where the business is public-facing, the need for proactive pest control measures is a higher priority, and is subject to food safety and hygiene legislation, regulated by national governments and auditing bodies linked to the industries themselves.

Food-Borne Illnesses

Food-borne illnesses are a common yet preventable public health concern across the globe. Poor hand hygiene and food preparation practices, as well as pests, present a big threat to food safety along the entire supply chain. This leads to serious problems for both individuals and business operations.
