Maintaining a low carbon footprint is one of the goals of most food enterprises not only to benefit the environment, but also to minimise operational costs. One method of achieving this is by protecting busy openings from temperature loss by installing a high-speed insulating roll door.
Colby raised storage areas can double the usable floor area in warehouses or distribution centres using standard pallet racking components. This would, of course, be subject to the obtainment of the usual development, building and fire approvals.
Rentokil Pest Management education programs include the PestAware program which provides staff with some simple tips on helping avoid pest problems.

Many would say this is an ‘oxymoron’ because how can you manage pests without pest control? In today’s manufacturing world, particularly in the food processing industry, the management of pests has become a high priority.
