PestWest’s flyDetect was announced as joint winner of the Best New Product Award at The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology Virtual Awards Ceremony.
The SOFHT Awards recognise and celebrate excellence within the food industry and its associated industries and PestWest said it was incredibly honoured to have won an award.
Fred Hurstel, PestWest’s business director, said: “We are so pleased that flyDetect has been recognised as a Best New Product by food industry experts. It has been years in the making and is the first of its kind in the pest control industry.
“Flying insects contaminating products remains a significant issue for many food companies and early identification of potential flying insect problems is a huge benefit in areas such as food production, where zero tolerance of insects is required.”
He added: “During the current pandemic, it is especially important that food manufacturers have the peace of mind that insect detection is being taken care of whilst keeping their staff safe, and flyDetect allows them to do this via remote monitoring.”
