The management of Clover regretfully announces that they were forced to cancel their Guinness World Records title attempt at breaking the Longest Line of Sandwiches at Maponya Mall, on the 7th October, due to inclement weather.
The company has been in planning for months to break a 4 kilometre long “Longest Line of Sandwiches record which would have utilised 420 litres of Cream O’Naise mayonnaise, 16 000 25cm baguettes, 64 800 slices of Clover Cheese, 810kgs (or 80 000) slices of tomatoes and 1 650 heads of lettuce,” explains Clover Senior Brand Manager Edith Molepo. “Our teams managed to get to 2468.93 meters before the rains came down.”
“However it’s not all bad news though, we are thrilled to be able to still donate the completed sandwiches and unused sizable amount of bread and fresh raw ingredients to our chosen charities Choc and The Gift of the Givers and to Baragwanath Hospital to make delicious sandwiches with,” she says.
“We have been overwhelmed at the amount of love shown on social media platforms by celebrities and people at home who were bitterly disappointed we couldn’t continue the record attempt, especially because the enthusiasm for our new Cream O’Naise mayonnaise has been extremely positive. However they have risen to the challenge beautifully and are continuing the fun by making their own attempts at creating the longest line of sandwiches using our newest product on the market, our creamy mayonnaise Cream O’Naise accompanied by #CreamONaiseGWR and #CreamyTilTheLastDrop.
We would like to extend a massive thanks to our teams on the ground and to all our supporters at home and to those that made an effort to join us today at Maponya Mall.”
