Rentokil





Pestaurant history

To celebrate our heritage and over 85 years in pest control, Rentokil unveiled the world’s first pop-up ‘Pestaurant’ on Thursday 15 August 2013, at One New Change in London, serving Londoners with Sweet Chilli Pigeon burgers, along with a range of sweet and savoury edible insects. Later that month we supported the LATES evening at the Science Museum with a ‘mini-bug buffet’ and in October we took the Rentokil Pestaurant to Edinburgh’s historic Grassmarket, giving Scotland it's first taste of edible insects.

The 2014 Global Pestaurant Day was a great success in Writer's Square, Belfast. Our Irish visitors consumed three quarters of a kilo of edible insects, from cheddar cheese mealworms and curry crickets to plain roasted locusts, along with 880 sweet chilli pigeon burger tasters. During the autumn we took pestaurant on tour to schools across the UK, in support of our chosen charity Malaria No More UK and their 'Miles for Malaria' fundraising campaign. 

As a National company, with local support, we continue to take our award winning Pestaurant on tour, to towns and cities throughout the UK.
