Running a food business is more than just serving your customers with a great menu; it also means providing diners an enjoyable experience that will make them want to come back and recommend your place to others.
As for our team at Termex Pest Management, this means helping you with tailored solutions for keeping your restaurant, bakery, coffee shop or bar free of pests.
Pest Management and Food Safety
Seeing flies, cockroaches or rodents, among other pests, while dining won’t just leave a bad taste in the mouth, but also give your business a bad name. Even worse, pests can be hazardous to the health of your guests and employees as they are known to be disease carriers.
You can maintain a pest-free environment in your food business by:
- Storing food, ingredients and utensils in sealed containers;
- Installing door and window screens to prevent the access of pests;
- Securing the potential entry points of pests in the surrounding areas, including wall cracks, and cavities;
- Repairing leaking fixtures and plumbing equipment; and
- Having your property regularly checked for pests and implementing pest control methods.
When it comes to pest management in the food service industry, preventative methods are top priority for avoiding any types of infestations from cropping up. Regular maintenance should follow to ensure the effective prevention and elimination of pests, and for your staff to remain up-to-date with measures on how to maintain a pest-free and hygienic environment.
The local council may conduct random inspections to check that you are in compliance with the sanitation and food safety requirements set for the food business industry. If your restaurant does not meet the food safety standards, you may face sanctions and be fined for infringement.
We also know that with the power of social media and review sites, it is much easier for customers to talk about their dining experience with you, which can either make or break your reputation.
