Food and Beverage Processing

Food safety starts with science. So it makes sense that The Orkin Man® takes a scientific approach to helping protect sensitive food processing environments like yours. When you choose Orkin’s Food Safety Precision Protection™, you get a program designed specifically for your needs. Plus, it comes complete with the Orkin Gold Medal QA® package, a system of comprehensive documentation and audit support anytime you need it.

In addition to pest control, your program might include other services such as:

  • Exclusion – Pests can enter your facility in a multitude of ways. To help prevent pests from finding their way inside, Orkin can identify and seal numerous potential pest entry points such as cracks and crevices, creating a barrier against pesky invaders.
  • Fly Control – Flies are a nuisance and a health risk to food and beverage processing facilities. We can work with you to develop a Fly Control plan to fit your needs, using a combination of light traps, baiting, chemical controls and exclusion to help prevent infestations.
  • Actizyme™ Floor and Drain Cleaner – A low-impact answer to grease and grime, Orkin Actizyme™ is a professional cleaning solution that uses a unique blend of naturally occurring enzymes and beneficial bacteria to help you maintain a pristine production environment.
  • Bird Control – Birds can be a major nuisance and cause expensive property damage to buildings, roofs and ventilations systems. Even worse, they can spread serious illness to your staff or customers. Our Bird Control program can help protect your facility from this difficult problem.

No two facilities are alike, so your Orkin Commercial Pest Specialist will take a scientific approach based on the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which rely on proactive techniques to help prevent pests and use chemicals only as a last resort. From day one and at every service visit, we’ll assess your unique situation, implement sound solutions and monitor the results. Learn more about our proven A.I.M. approach.

Recognizing Excellence in Food & Beverage Pest Management

We partner with The IPM Institute of North America and NSF to present the annual IPM Partner Awards, recognizing Orkin’s Food Safety Precision Protection™ customers for outstanding commitment to their IPM partnership with Orkin, judged on: vigilant sanitation, thorough pest documentation by staff, prompt adherence to recommendations, and staff participation in IPM training. Since its inception in 2004, the annual awards have recognized dozens of facilities across the United States and Canada, and have been covered by a number of food industry publications.

We’re excited to see so many facilities using IPM as part of their sustainability initiatives. By using non-chemical methods of prevention first, [IPM Partner Award] winners are creating the cleanest, healthiest environments at their facilities.
