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. 

Our 'Global Pestaurant Day' on 4th June 2014 was a great success in Writer's Square. Our Belfast 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, to which we'll donate £1 for every mile we have travelled on tour. We brought pestaurant to a total of 1,586 kids, aged between 6 - 17, across 10 different schools - staging pop-up events across England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. We shared some interesting facts on entomophagy (the official term for eating insects) with them, as well as discussing why insects can provide a sustainable food source for the future. The tour proved so popular that we already have scores of requests for visits (and re-visits) throughout 2015.

As a National company, with local support, we will be taking our Pestaurant on tour once again, to a number of towns and cities throughout the UK during 2015.
