To celebrate its 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. Colleagues across the globe have had similar success in their countries as the world's interest in edible insects grows.
This autumn we are taking pestaurant on tour to schools, colleges and more across the UK, in support of our chosen charity Malaria No More UK and their 'Miles for Malaria' fundraising campaign. If you know a school, college, scout or guide group, community club or youth club in the vicinity of one of our Rentokil Initial locations* and would like pestaurant to pay a visit, then please contact Mrs Katie Kinnes.
*All the available 20 slots will be assigned on a first come, first served basis
Following appearances at the Mersey Port Health Authority Awareness Day in Liverpool, the Northern Restaurant & Bar Show 2014 in Manchester and a return visit to One New Change, London we already have several Pestaurants lined up for the coming months.
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.
