This week’s infosheet is all about pest control in food businesses. The inspiration for the sheet was a report out of Ireland that some upscale restaurants in a popular Dublin mall were closed due to infestation.
FSAI chief executive said Dr John O’Brien was quoted as saying "Catering for increased turnover during the Christmas festivities can result in commercial caterers, restaurants and retailers working flat out to meet demands."
Dr. O’Brien goes on to say that pest control and proper storage are especially important around the holidays as special functions may mean large quantities of food are often prepared several hours in advance, increasing pressure on refrigeration storage, meaning procedures should be monitored carefully.
