The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) would
like to present ‘Breakfast Bites’, a series of free, informal webinars for
small food businesses. Here, we provide useful information on the topics you
want to know more about.
Our upcoming Breakfast Bite is on: Pest control in
your food business.
This webinar will focus on good practice for food
business operators in managing pest control procedures, monitoring and pest
proofing in your food business. It is suitable for all food business
Conefrey (Food Safety Authority of Ireland) will outline the rise in pest control
issues associated with recent food safety enforcements and the responsibility
of the food business operator to ensure your premises is protected from pests.
The event will
also feature Philip Devenish (Environmental Health Service) who will speak
about effective pest control. During his talk, Philip will look at some of the
reasons why food businesses need a pest control regime and explore what a good
set of procedures looks like in contrast to examples of bad practice that led
to negative outcomes for some food businesses.

for pest management and outline what your pest control operator should be
delivering to ensure your food premises is protected from pests.
