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.
A National company, with local support, we will be taking our Pestaurant to a number of towns and cities throughout the UK during 2014 as well as making a return visit to London. Our 'Global Pestaurant Day' on 4th June 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.
This 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 has proved so popular that we already have scores of requests coming in for visits (and re-visits) in 2015.
Following appearances at the Mersey Port Health Authority Awareness Day in Liverpool, the Northern Restaurant & Bar Show in Manchester and a return visit to One New Change - London, Southampton Boat Show and our 'Miles for Malaria' tour of 10 schools across the UK, we are now busy planning several Pestaurants ready for next year.
Pestaurant will be visiting:
At a Rentokil Pestaurant the food is FREE and a number of Rentokil experts are on hand to discuss the edible insects being served, answer any pest related questions you may have and pass on their 'top tips' for avoiding pest problems at work and at home.
