Rochester, NY (Oct. 5,2007) – RCD Exterminating, Inc., a pest management company based in Rochester NY, is one of the first pest management companies to attain the elite designations of QualityPro and QualityPro Food Protection simultaneously. With sixteen years of serving residential and commercial customers’ pest management needs in the Rochester area, RCD Exterminating leads the way for ensuring quality in their day-to-day operations with a special emphasis on safety for food supply, storage and service.
Weel before news of possible contamination of food products became public, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) developed a program to help ensure that member organizations are better prepared to help protect our food supply. This program is available to all pest management companies, but only QualityPro companies can receive the unique designation of QualityPro Food Protection. The QualityPro Food Protection program adds another layer of advanced training and testing to the already stringent QualityPro process, with a sharpened focus on food plants, storage buildings, warehouses and related facilities.
“Being one of a very select few pest management company in our area to earn both the QualityPro and QualityPro Food Protection designations is important to me,” said Robert Dehn, owner and founder of RCD Exterminating. “I feel very strongly that sensitive environments such as our restaurant, food distribution centers and all food service establishments demand an extra level of care and attention. Having pursued these two designations speaks to our commitment to a higher level of service quality provided by our company to the Rochester marketplace.”
To achieve the QualityPro Food Protection designation, a company must first meet stringent QualityPro qualifications incorporating five key principles, including business operations, consumer relations, environmental stewardship, technician training as well as food protection-specific integrated pest management techniques. A company may also choose to participate in additional advanced training, specific to the food storage and service industries.
“RCD Exterminating is one of a few, elite companies in the country that has chosen to participate in both the QualityPro and QualityPro Food Protection programs, a fact that demonstrates their commitment to provide consumers with the highest possible level of professional pest management services,” said Andrew Architect, executive director of QualityPro.
RCD Exterminating, Inc., established in 1990, has demonstrated a strong commitment to the pest management needs of the Rochester area marketplace. For more information, call 1-585-453-9748.
