About Yum Bug
210727_Tacos-Export-Image.png

At Yum Bug we make it easy to cook delicious insect meals at home – with our insect cooking kits delivered straight through your letterbox.

 

We’re on a mission to change perceptions and take edible insects mainstream. To do this Yum Bug is building a world-class team of fun-loving, ambitious people, and we’d love you to be one of them! 

 

We’ll be launching a viral campaign called the #YumBugChallenge – which will challenge people to try insects for an environmental cause. There’s more on this below.

Why insects?

Insects are one of the most sustainable proteins in the world, and we believe that they can play a huge role in our fight against climate change. They use minimal resources and provide maximum nutrition; in comparison with beef, insects provide 3 times more protein and emit 1800 times less CO2.
 

What is the #YumBugChallenge?

The challenge looks to generate hype and raise awareness of edible insects, whilst doing good and raising money for an environmental cause in the process.

 

The rules are simple: participants will post a video of themselves eating crickets on social media and challenge their friends to do the same. Those who chicken (or bug!) out will have to donate to an environmental cause, in a similar way to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge a few years ago.

The type of person you are and your values are just as important to us as your experience and skills. We only hire really kind people!
