Logan, Utah, July 29, 2022: Schreiber Foods is thrilled to announce we are the new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holder for the largest macaroni and cheese.
Hundreds of employees and community members gathered outside the Logan manufacturing plant to participate in the excitement and enjoy the mac ‘n cheese made with Cooper® cheese. An official judge from Guinness World Records was on hand to verify the record and confirmed that the macaroni and cheese weighing 4,742 pounds was a new world record.
Derek Carlsen, Human Resources Team Leader, said, “What better way to celebrate 50 years of making cheese in Cache Valley than to break a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title?”
The public was invited to help eat the thousands of servings of mac ‘n cheese. Schreiber is partnering with a local food pantry to donate any remaining food to their clients.
The celebration came during Schreiber’s inaugural Week of Giving, which fits with Schreiber’s ongoing vision to do good through food every day. Schreiber’s 40-plus locations around the world dedicated July 24-30 to giving back to their communities through volunteering, food donations and other activities. As part of that, the Logan plant is working on another ambitious goal – to collect 50,000 cake mixes for local food pantries.
“Cake and brownie mixes are some of the most requested items at pantries,” Derek said. “People typically donate canned food items. But birthdays and other special occasions don’t stop when there’s a financial hardship.”
The plant is also raising money for local food pantries by partnering with local restaurants in a Dine Out For Hunger campaign.
“We’re proud to provide delicious food, and even prouder to know the small acts of good we did this week are making an impact in our communities around the world,” Derek said.
