Food and Animal Fodder Industry

Professional Pest Management in food industry and animal fodder industry

Strict hygienic regulations, growing consumer protection and high quality standards have led to the implementation of suitable procedures regarding pest control in such industries.

Therefore, the following fields of legislation form the basis in terms of “IPM” (Integrated Pest Management) under which pest control has to be operated.

  • Food Hygiene Ordinance (LMHV)
  • European Ordinance 852/2004
  • DIN standard 10523
  • Food contact material law & Animal feed law (LFGB)

IPM stands for the combination of procedures under which the overriding consideration of biological, biotechnical and other measures are preferred to the use of chemical remedies.

Many customers of the food industry, paying special attention to the food producing industry, often orient the entire procedures and relevant process sequences towards international quality standards. Concerning Germany it would be:

  • DIN EN ISO 22000 (international standard for food and animal feed)
  • IFS (International Featured Standard, Food)
  • BRC (British Retail Consortium)
  • AIB (American Institute of Baking)

To fulfil the scales and quality standards, specific expertise, experience, appropriate trained and qualified personnel is required. It is also expected to have a high scale of flexibility in order to act swiftly.
