PEST MANAGEMENT FOR RESTAURANTS CAMBRIDGE
Ensuring effective pest management and pest control for pubs, restaurants, cafes and hospitality facilities in Cambridge is essential because they rely heavily on their reputation and word of mouth for success. Poor customer experiences can have a negative effect on a catering business, so it is vital for owners to ensure their premises provide a clean, safe and hygienic environment for their customers.
The UK catering and hospitality industry is heavily regulated by the EHO (Environment Health Office) and the Food Standards Agency and catering facilities are required all to comply with strict UK food safety & hygiene regulations.
In 2008 the Food Standards Agency launched a programme called the ‘food hygiene rating scheme’aimed at helping customers make more informed choices about where to eat & drink and in turn encourages businesses to improve their hygiene standards.
Unwanted and nuisance pests can be a real problem for business in the catering and hospitality industry, so it is vitally important that strict procedures are in place to avoid outbreaks of pests and prevention is definitely better than cure.
