Combating rodent menace in your food business

One of the worst nightmares for guests has been an experience of food poisoning after eating in a restaurant or some other hospitality facility. The price a restaurateur pays for not taking care of hygiene and cleanliness of a hospitality facility is very expensive.

Food hygiene ratings have a greater impact over a diner’s choice of venue than customer service.

Shiny cooker hoods, stain-free carpets, clean kitchen areas, eating and dining areas, washrooms, and beautiful exteriors – a lot goes into maintaining a hygienic restaurant that’s always busy with customers and staff.

An abundant amount of food availability, improper sanitation, leftover food, are the reasons why the pests enter a restaurant.

It’s the duty of the restaurant manager to ensure the health and wellbeing of both customers and staff. Without proper hygiene and cleanliness policy in place, a restaurant runs the risk of failing health and safety inspections, contravening compliance laws and falling out of favor with its patrons.

There are numerous instances where restaurants have been closed due to pest infestations and failure to health and safety inspections..

Let us have a look at the news reported for same.

South China Mornig Post │September 10, 2018

A man from Weifang surnamed Ma said he and his family were eating at the restaurant on Thursday night when, after a few bites, his wife found a dead rat in the soup.

Shanghai-based Kankan News quoted Ma as saying that restaurant staff had told him: “If you are worried about the baby, then we’ll give you 20,000 yuan (US$3,000) to abort it.”

The woman said she was halfway through her dinner when she found quite a few white worms in the soup. She immediately called restaurant staff who told her they were high protein and swallowed a worm to show her. There were no reports on whether authorities had intervened.

Use of mechanical traps and glue boards is common. But are they effective?
