How food hygiene legislation impacts businesses handling food
A supermarket is no place for a pest. Any sign of pest activity can seriously harm your brand and public perception and, critically, pose serious health risks in areas where fresh food is handled.
At Rentokil, our pest control solutions for food retailers provide the reassurance of complete protection from pest problems.
We have extensive experience of helping supermarkets with their pest problems and providing effective solutions to manage an infestation safely and effectively.
At Rentokil, we understand the importance of good pest control to ensure a safe and hygienic environment for employees, customers and visitors.
Recognising the food retail industry with a zero tolerance to pests, we provide a dedicated team of High Dependency technicians.
Their expertise and industry knowledge will help to plan the most effective pest control service for your supermarket, minimart or local food retail shop.
Our understanding of food legislation will ensure that our service enables you to comply with all legal obligations, including Food Hygiene Regulations 2006 and the Food Safety Act 1990.
Our Pest Prevention Service provides effective protection against pests in supermarkets and local food stores.
Full site inspections - as part of our regular service visits your High Dependency Service Technician will fully inspect all areas of the store and around its perimeter. Any pest activity or pest risks will be identified.
Innovative treatments - our R&D team has developed a range of proven solutions, including our chemical-free Entotherm insect heat treatment, to solve any issue with minimal disruption.
Recommendations - will be documented as well as highlighted to staff on the site. It will include advice on working practices and procedures to reduce the risk of pests entering the store or becoming a problem.
Online reporting - through PestNetOnline our online reporting tool will highlight any risks, outstanding recommendations and a full service history for your site. This is particularly useful for tracking risks and service delivery across a network of stores.
Multi-site support - with global presence in 50 countries and national coverage in Ireland, we can provide support across multiple sites. You will have a single point of contact and an account manager to coordinate the service delivery you expect across the entire network. Each individual store can also contact their local Rentokil team to meet any immediate needs. We can also incorporate logistics and distribution into service agreements.
Local Food Retailers - We support smaller, local grocers and other food retailers such as butchers and bakers with professional control solutions for common pests such as rats, mice, cockroaches and flies.
