At Ecopoise, we understand it's critical to maintain a pest-free environment in your food processing and manufacturing facility. Food and beverage production and packaging demand the most stringent standards of quality and hygiene. Fouling or contamination of food or raw materials from even minor pest activity is unacceptable.
Pest prevention, early detection and effective control are essential to comply with ever-tightening policies and regulations.
As industry experts, we will work with you to meet your industry's rigorous audit standards and protect your valuable reputation. A pest infestation can have a serious impact on your business, affecting your stock, reputation and customer reviews. This may result in loss of revenue, loss of customers, claims for compensation and even prosecution.
Stored products are at a large risk of becoming infested by insects. Businesses that handle cereals, rice, grains or dry food products are potentially at risk of infestations.
These SPIs can infect items such as flour, rice, barley and dried fruits and nuts. There are many different species, from grain weevils to rust-red flour beetles that can damage raw materials and contaminate finished products - resulting in both product and financial loss.
