Proper sanitation and storage practices are crucial to food safety and effective pest management. These are preventive controls that are essential to your food safety plan – learn more about what should be included by downloading our free Food Safety Modernization Act Special Report. Failing in either of these areas can have a negative domino effect on your business.

That’s why we created a 15-question quiz to help you determine if you’re a sanitation and storage guru, or if you and your staff still need additional training. Download the full Sanitation and Storage quiz for the answers.

Here’s just a sample of the sanitation and storage challenge:

2. When keeping inventory of stored products, which system is better for preventing pest infestations?

  • LIFO (Last In, First Out)

3. Ants are a constant threat to the sanitation and safety of almost any commercial building. They travel long distances in search of food and usually travel in masses. Do you know which season are ants most active?

4. Which of the following materials, if installed around the exterior of the building, help deter pests?

  • Gravel

  • Woodchips

  • Pine straw
