In December, the Food Protection Alliance (FPA) sent letters to members and customers stating that FPA had been dissolved on Dec. 1, 2017, multiple sources have confirmed to PCT.
The dissolution was a result of Ecolab having acquired three of FPA’s founding member companies — Food Protection Services; Royal Pest Solutions; and Research Fumigation Company. Ecolab made that announcement also on Dec. 1, 2017
FPA, created in 2004, described itself as “an organization of regional companies that holds the shared vision of providing excellence in pest management, food safety, fumigation services, alternatives to fumigation and product sales throughout North America.”
The group was started with five founding member companies and had added more than 20 companies in subsequent years, providing nation-wide coverage.
