Providing Your Customers with an Unforgettable Dining Experience
Numerous food scares and pest issue in food & beverage (F&B) establishments have resulted in increasing public awareness of food quality and safety in every parts of the world including India. The sight of pest in an F&B outlet does not only spoil customers’ dining experience but poses risk of food contamination.
In the food supply chain, you may noticed that there are numerous pest infiltration points and as vulnerable as the food processing plants, restaurants are also at high risk. Undetected pest infestation/ problem along the food supply chain could potentially end up at your restaurant.
The most valuable asset of a restaurant is its reputation. This comes principally from the quality of the food and service, but your customers also expect the highest level of hygiene. Pests are carriers of food-borne diseases such as Salmonellosis and Leptospirosis, the few deadliest to humans. Mice, rats, flies and cockroaches pose a particular threat to hygiene standards in food preparation and storage areas because of their disease risk and the contamination they cause.
Moreover, the appearance of pests whether it’s live or dead can make customers be repulsive to your food. On top of that, negative publicity via blogs and social networking sites can easily damage the valuable reputation of your restaurant that you’ve worked very hard to maintain. Therefore, it is critical to implement a comprehensive integrated pest management programme to help you manage pest risks better.
The Pest Prevention Service from Rentokil protects restaurants at risk from attack by these key pests. Your local pest control technician will regularly visit your premises to check bait stations, look for signs of pest activity, identify potential risks and advise on any steps you can take to reduce the risk of future pest problems.
