INFOGRAPHIC: Understanding what the food sector wants from pest management

Training | PPC93 December 2018

Bayer CropScience has teamed up with BRC to undertake a huge piece of research to help both the food and pest management sectors understand each other better.

The initial findings of the research were unveiled at the BPCA North West Regional Forum, but if you missed it, we’ve got a quick recap of some of the headline findings here.

Bayer and BRC conducted five detailed qualitative interviews with technical managers of large pest management companies in the USA and UK to map the stages of their working relationship. They then investigated these stages with 200 telephone interviews with pest technicians and an online survey of 200 quality assurance and food safety managers (FSMs).

BRC Global Standards is delighted to partner with Bayer to understand the different requirements from both pest control officers and food safety managers and see how they compare. The revealing insight creates the basis of a better working relationship, which will lead to stronger resilience in this technical area. This is good news for all stakeholders, including consumers.

This is the first large-scale piece of research of its kind and we are pleased to be partnering with BRC to start bridge-building between the two professions. The results will greatly assist in developing the best pest management programmes possible.

Due to differences in survey administration, PCOs selected their top three from a pre-populated list. FSMs listed their top three as free text responses, which were then categorised to match the PCO attributes list.
