Steritech's Zero Tolerance Pest Prevention Program Is SQF and BRC Compliant

Dec. 3, 2008

Anticipating an industry trend towards the adoption of globally recognized standards for food safety and quality, Steritech has tailored its Zero Tolerance Pest Prevention Program standards to be Safe Quality Food (SQF) and British Retail Consortium (BRC) compliant. This move will help primary producers, manufacturers and distributors comply with rigorous new third party audit standards.

“Often overlooked, pest prevention plays a surprisingly important role in the governance, risk and compliance strategies for companies connected in any way to the supply chain,” says Steritech CEO Mark Jarvis. “Partnering with a company that has intimate knowledge of the standards and specifically the requirements around pesticide use, documentation, reporting and remedial action is a clear advantage.” 

In recent years, rapid globalization of the food supply has led to the proliferation of food safety standards and certification schemes. Even under the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) there are three accepted standards: Dutch HACCP, SQF and BRC. Steritech’s Zero Tolerance Pest Prevention Program has been benchmarked against these standards, providing the highest possible levels of protection against structure infesting pests. In addition, Steritech’s technology platform provides visibility over important pest control data.
