Food Industry

Merlin Environmental have been providing pest control to the food industry for over a decade. During this time we have helped hundreds of clients resolve and manage pest related problems and to fulfill their obligations under The Food Safety Act. We provide a wide range of pest control services to the food industry. Whatever your size of business, we provide a bespoke service designed to suit your specific requirements. We service a number of food manufacturing companies, bakeries, cooking oil producers, outside caterers, butcheries and abattoirs. Many household brands entrust us with their pest management needs and ultimately their reputation.

Food Industry Pest ControlWe are extremely experienced in dealing with third party auditors, providing services that comply with our customers’ requirements. Our pest control and reporting systems are regularly audited by various organisations including the British Retail Consortium (BRC), The American Institute of Bakers (AIB), Tesco, Marks and Spencer and The Soil Association. Compliance with these systems need not be expensive and can significantly improve your business, our practical knowledge will help you to maintain effective standards, minimise cost and maximise profit.

We know that our greatest asset is our staff, the key to the level of service we provide is the exceptional quality of our service technicians and the technical backup they receive. We do not employ “bait box kickers” we source the very best our industry has to offer.

Merlin Environmental are unique in the pest control industry, we do not put time constraints on service checks, the technician takes as long as is necessary to inspect the site properly. Technicians can use whatever control systems are available and legal in the UK, all we want is the successful resolution of any pest problems that develop in minimum time. To ensure that our technicians remain at the top of their trade we are a BASIS registered training centre and run regular update sessions and specialist courses on a number of subjects. In addition, internal QA audits are regularly carried out to ensure that the high quality that we expect of our field staff is surpassed along with our clients expectations.

On sites that require field biologists inspections we use outside independent field biologists. Even though we have field biologists on our staff we do not feel it is correct to audit our own work. We use these biologists as an independent external QC system in addition to our own internal auditing processes.
