OVER TO YOU GUINNESS!
We are very relieved to announce that, after a long and bloody battle with Guinness’ website and with their stringent uploading requirements, all relevant evidence for our World Record Attempt is now before them for assessment. This amounts to around 400 pieces of evidence - including written, photographic and video evidence.
Together, we made 359.6kgs of delicious, tangy, pink sauerkraut as evidenced by Andrew Wilson, our official weights and measures witness on Friday 26 October 2018. And now we have to wait - until the end of June - to find out if we have managed to set the first EVER Guinness World Record for the largest dish of bacterially fermented sauerkraut.
Thank you to every single one of you who helped us to get this far, particularly, our main sponsors, Riverford, Yeo Valley and Symprove. Together, we have done something very special. And we thank you for making that possible.
Here is a selection of photos from 14 October
Mass Food Production, the Good Kind
The UK officially has the worst diet in Europe. Mass-produced, highly processed foods are one of the biggest contributors to long-term health issues – illnesses that drain us and our NHS.
Fermented foods not only pack more flavour and health benefits than processed foods, but they're inexpensive to make. We want to spread the word about how easy it is to make sauerkraut and how good it is for our gut health.
Assuming we set the first ever Guinness World Record for the largest dish of bacterially fermented sauerkraut, we hope that someone else will host the next Sauerkrautathon and break our record.
If you are interested in doing this, please read on.
Thank You To Our Sponsors
Riverford Organic Farmers is the perfect main sponsor for our event. Not only are they sponsoring our marquee, but they are also providing us with all the organic vegetables we need to make a very large amount of sauerkraut. Thank you Riverford.
We are so happy to have Yeo Valley Organic as a main sponsor. Yeo is very local to us and has long been a standard-bearer for ethics and principles in farming. They are supporting Sauerkrautathon in all sorts of ways and it is lovely to have them as part of our dream team.
We are thrilled to announce Symprove as a Sauerkrautathon main sponsor. What better partner for Sauerkrautathon, than a unique multi-strain live activated bacterial supplement with a totally unique delivery system? Symprove is part of the future of gut health – adding microbes to support health rather than killing them (as antibiotics do). Thank you for joining us, Symprove.
