By |  August 16, 2017

Sprague conference logoTo help food processing professionals improve food safety and navigate the maze of ever-evolving regulatory requirements, all the while maintaining effective pest management programs, Sprague Pest Solutions is hosting a pair of education conferences.

Sprague’s Innovation in Pest Management Conference will take place Nov. 14-15, 2017, at the Hilton Hotel in Vancouver, Wash. A second event will be held Nov. 16, 2017, at the Marriott University Park in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The theme for these events, “Smarter Ideas in Brand Management,” reflects the changing expectations for the food industry. Increased complexity in the food supply chain, tougher demands from consumers, and tightened expectations from buyers are compelling food manufacturers to find new ways to defend their products, buildings and customers from pest-related risk. Attendees can expect to learn smarter solutions and gain insights into the future of pest management and pest prevention.

Attendees will hear first-hand from experienced pest management and food safety experts as they share best practices from the field in risk-based pest programs and prevention, and the impact of third-party audit compliance. Education sessions include:

  • Pest Exclusion: Pest Management by Design
  • Trends in Global Food Safety
  • Leveraging Risk Assessments in Food Protection
  • Modern Rodent Control in Food Plants
  • Remote Sensing for Rodent Management
  • The Changing Face of Third-Party Audits
  • Getting Your Pest Program In Sync

Confirmed speakers for the events include:

  • Dominique Sauvage, Director of Field Operations and Quality at Copesan Services
  • Dr. Jody Gangloff-Kaufmann, Entomology Adviser at Cornell University at Cornell University
  • Dr. Jim Fredericks, chief entomologist for National Pest Management Association
  • John Boyce, Corporate Food Safety & Quality Assurance at Trident Seafoods
  • Mark VanderWerp, Manager of Education & Training for Rose Pest Solutions
  • Jeff Weier, Technical Director of Sprague Pest Solutions
  • Keith Rowney, Bird Control Specialist of Sprague Pest Solutions

QA and food safety managers, facility, plant and warehouse managers, and sanitation managers will all benefit from attending, says the company, based in Tacoma, Wash. For registration and additional information, visit SpraguePest.eventbrite.com.
