Improve Your Next Food Safety Audit Score With These Steps

Third-party audits are a serious matter for food processing facilities. Any business, for that matter, within the food processing, packaging, logistics and warehousing industry knows a good audit score is essential to business success. Just one low score on the pest control portion of your audit can cause your customers to lose trust in your business – and if those customers pull their support, you could see a major impact on your bottom line.

Pest control plays a major role in food safety audits, accounting for up to 20 percent of your facility's total score. And with the new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in place, the emphasis on preventing issues like pests through each step of the supply chain has never been more important.

The key to achieving high third-party audit scores is simple: pair an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program with thorough documentation. IPM focuses on strategies like sanitation, exclusion and facility maintenance to help prevent pest activity.

Food processing facilities must strengthen their IPM program and documentation efforts to not only minimize risk and help protect their product and consumer base, but also be audit-ready at any time. By implementing both a proactive, comprehensive IPM program and a documentation process, you can focus on preparing for your third-party audit day by day.

That's why Orkin has partnered with NSF International to provide expert advice for the pest control portion of your next audit. Help is just a click away for the AIB International, ASI, British Retail Consortium (BRC), NSF International, Safe Quality Food (SQF), Silliker, Inc. and YUM! Brands audit standards.
