Orkin Wins Food Processing Readers’ Choice Award 2007

Orkin, Inc. received a 2007 Readers’ Choice Award from Food Processing magazine, the leading trade publication for food and beverage processors. Orkin was named the “Silver Supplier” in the pest management category in a survey sent to the publication’s more than 25,000 readers.

The fifth annual Food Processing Readers’ Choice Awards recognize the top vendors in the food processing industry. Readers vote on 40 product categories through an unaided recall survey, meaning readers are given the categories and asked to supply names without being aided by a multiple choice list of providers. Voters represent all food and beverage categories, all size companies and titles; there are no suppliers or vendors on the list. Food Processing will feature the winners in its February 2007 issue and on its Web site, www.foodprocessing.com, throughout the year.

“We take great pride in offering respected and effective pest management services to the food and beverage industry,” said Cam Glover, commercial marketing manager for Orkin. “At Orkin, we make a commitment to provide the highest quality service to our customers, and this award shows that we’re continually offering pest management programs that exceed our customers’ expectations.”

Orkin’s extensive internal training program and its team of top quality assurance professionals help the company achieve its success in the highly regulated food and beverage industries. In 2006 Training magazine, the training industry’s premiere publication, recognized Orkin among its annual “Top 100” for the fourth consecutive year. Also in 2006, Pest Control Technology magazine and Syngenta Professional Products honored Orkin with their Best-In-Class Customer Service Award.

Committed to keeping abreast of the latest issues affecting the industry, Orkin is a member of several leading food processing industry associations including The American Association of Meat Processors, The American Meat Institute, the Food Products Association, the International Association for Food Protection and the International Dairy Foods Association.
