Authorities are coming down hard on restaurants and cafés that don’t have sufficient “pest deterrent plans” in operation.

Don’t leave your food business open to the possibility of fines or closure. After all, Australian Food Safety Standards, 3.2.2, Para 24, clearly state “A food business must take all practicable measures to eradicate and prevent the harbourage of pests on the food premises”.

Watch this video to see how this innovative and proven minty – aroma garbage bag repels cockroaches, rats and other pests.

At last, you can leave your restaurant or café at night, enjoying peace of mind that grubby, disease-carrying pests are not feasting freely because of your standard garbage bags!

Mint-X Garbage Bags REPEL cockroaches, rats and other pests – whereas standard garbage bags are like a “Dinner Invitation” to such vermin!

We understand that as a café, restaurant or food outlet owner, you do your best to keep your premises and kitchen clean. However, you know that getting rid of cockroaches from your kitchen and rats from your garbage dumpster area is an ongoing, management-intensive challenge!

Now here’s a really scary “fact” for you. State health authorities are getting more vigilant about pest-related problems and cleanliness for food businesses. For example, the NSW Food Authorities “Name and Shame File Register” actually lists offending food outlets for the public to see which have been fined.

The webpage at gives such food businesses a very “undesirable reputation.”

Don’t live with the risk of having cockroaches in your kitchen and rats thriving from your garbage dumpster at night.

You now have the opportunity to use this miracle Mint-X “rodent and cockroach” REPELLENT garbage bags that can provide you with peace of mind.

The mint-aroma repels such pests and stops rats from chewing through the actual bag.

The end result is that cockroaches struggle to feed around Mint-x bags and end up leaving the kitchen in order to survive. While rats can no longer feed from the dumpsters outside, and are forced to go to bait stations or away from your food business for their next meal.

Noting most food businesses already use “normal” garbage bags, making the switch to Mint-X REPELLENT garbage bags is very simple. Mint-X bags are available from your existing packaging or cleaning suppliers and the Premium Mint-X bags are similar in price to your “normal” garbage bags.

Gone Home and the Lights are Off.
