Contamination of Food on Containers
Pests such as insects, rodents and birds can contaminate food before, during and after transport in a shipping container. Their presence in and around food during shipping is unsanitary and can lead to further illness and/or disease.
There are several risks associated with pests in shipping containers. They can
- contaminate food, food contact surfaces
- spread disease to humans
- compromise food packaging, resulting in food loss
- cause equipment and property damage
It is important to control the risks associated with pests through proper container fumigation methods that meet stringent guidelines and are CIFA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) compliant.
All of our fumigation methods meet with CIFA compliance and are fully recorded with appropriate documentation.
