AGRICULTURE

The Food Safety Modernization Act and expansion of GFSI audit programs are challenging the agricultural industry like never before to comply with food safety regulations. Count on Sprague to establish or fine-tune your pest management and food safety program to ensure that you pass inspection with flying colors.

Keep your Organic Certification

Running an organic-certified food operation doesn't mean pests have to come with the territory. Let us arm you with rigorous prevention strategies, thorough documentation and, if needed, carefully targeted treatments that keep your certification in good standing.

We use a system of ongoing, fastidious communication and record-keeping – all to ensure your pest solutions stay compliant with the USDA's National Organic Program standards. Our team receives specific training for pest control in organic food environments, and when a clever strategy is in order, we bring the creative energy needed to protect your inventory.

As industry innovators, we continually work to reduce and, whenever possible, eliminate the use of pesticides.

OUR APPROACH

Rigorous, Thorough, Meticulous

Strategic Prevention

Reactive programs leave the door open to risk. We prevent complicated pest issues and partner with you to protect your business from potential threats.

Documentation

If it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen. Our reports include detailed inspection results and analysis of conditions or activity that could impact your program.

Smart Selection

We reserve the right to select the best possible products and services available. It’s one of the advantages of being a service company, not a product company.

Communication

We start with real people having real conversations. Then back it up with versatile communication systems to give information when and how you want it.

Standards-Based

Our reputation has been built on consistently performing to the toughest standards in food safety, third party audits, customer requirements, federal agency and local government.

Increase the value of your crops

Growers, packers, millers and processors have used integrated pest management protocols in their fields for generations. But as the industry evolves and food safety standards tighten, it's critical to stay on top of new pest control rules for barns, storage facilities, processing facilities, harvesting equipment and transportation equipment.

Also, food wholesalers, distributors, and retailers are purchasing crops more selectively than ever before, which requires documented pest management and food safety plans. Sprague can help you adopt verifiable pest management and comprehensive food safety programs to increase your crop value to these important customers. Let our expertise help make you the go-to provider for these key markets.
