The National Environment Agency had set out a regulation back in 2013 for food & beverage establishments to have a compulsory contracted service with a NEA qualified licensed Singapore pest control service provider. A one year contract between the two parties must be presented during the application of the SFA food store license.
F&B establishments are probably one of the best conditioned location for any pest infestations. With many food and waste sources abounds in the vicinity, having strict regulations to stem out pest infestations would only be nothing short of a necessity. The usual pest infestations we are looking for in a typical F&B outlet would be primarily cockroaches, ants, flies and rodents. Pest infestations in F&B establishments cause not only food safety concerns, but also bring with them harmful diseases that could potentially spread if not kept under control. In addition, the cleanliness and hygiene factor could almost always impact and potentially tip-over the public-perceived image of any food & drinks selling company over just an incident or two involving any of the nasty pests. How many times have we read this similar plot where a customer found a dead cockroach in his or her food and when this is reported onto social media, it spread like wildfire and seemingly uncontrollable. The response is not unsurprising, given that nobody in the right mind would want to bite into a dead cockroach in their midst of a meal. The laborious PR recovery actions of the company would definitely outweigh the cost of on-boarding a team of Singapore pest control specialists, to put a plug on this pest problem early before any potential pest infestation can take root.
Under NEA guidelines, the SFA license application would require the partnering Singapore pest control company:
1.) To be a NEA licensed and qualified Singapore pest control service operator
2.) To have established a one year contract with applicant company
3.) To have specified treatments plans for cockroaches, flies and rodents
