On the 3rd March 2018 Clover’s staff spent the morning at Maponya Mall, Soweto, making the longest line of sandwiches in the world while hundreds looked on in anticipation and excitement. The 4004,34 m long sandwich line comprised 8 100 baguettes measuring 50 cm each, 2 600 kg of grated Clover cheese and 800 kg of lettuce.
South African TV and radio personality Somizi Mhlongo was present during the event and kept the energy and vibe going throughout. The attempt was overseen by official Guinness World Record adjudicator Paulina Sapinska, who announced the breaking of the record at 12:30 PM that day. After the exciting announcement and some celebrating, a large selection of the sandwiches were shared among children at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, CHOC and The Gift of the Givers.
‘At Clover we’re proudly South African, a local household name for more than 100 years. We’re delighted to add another South African record for one of our newly launched brands, Clover Cream’O Naise to the famous Guinness World Records books,’ says a visibly proud Edith Molepo, Clover’s Senior Brand Manager.
