Stored Product Insects (SPIs) are one of the biggest pest threats to your food business. These tiny pests damage a significant proportion of the world's food supplies, posing a threat at all stages of the food supply chain, infesting any stored food, even once packaged. As food supply chains become more global, the risk of SPIs moving across countries and between suppliers is increasing. The greatest challenge for businesses is spotting an infestation before it causes significant damage.
Combining over 90 years of pest experience, behavioural studies and technical expertise with global data driven insight, join Rentokil, the world’s leading experts in pest management, as we provide a new perspective on the threat of SPIs to food businesses and discover everything you need to know about managing these tiny yet destructive pests and top tips on how to beat them.
Harnessing traditional pest expertise in combination with pioneering digital technology, leading entomologist Dr. Nancy Troyano and Digital Innovation Director, Paul Donegan, will explore the evolving threat of stored product insects for the production, processing, and logistics sectors, geographically and seasonally. In an increasingly connected world, we will demonstrate the value in using big data analytical insights to examine which stored product insects pose the biggest threat to food businesses, where they are most prevalent, where they cause the most damage and the growing SPI threats to watch for in the future. Importantly we will provide you with practical solutions for better protection against SPI pest risk.
Together, we will provide new and valuable insights to help you make sure your food business is best prepared to manage the world’s most costly set of pests and the biggest threats to food safety.
