A UK based food producer has made the world’s largest vegan burger – weighing a whopping 162kg and measuring 1.2metres in diameter.
Northern Ireland based Finnebrogue Artisan set a new Guinness world record with its gigantic burger.
The record-breaking burger was made in its £30million facility at Downpatrick, Co. Down.
A total of 10 colleagues were involved in completing the feat, which required creating 1274 of their standard sized naked evolution burgers.
The vegan burger was made using the brand’s Naked Evolution Burger recipe.
Around 10kg tomatoes, 4.5kg lettuce, 7kg cheese, 2kg tobacco onions, 5kg gherkins, 5kg Naked without the oink rashers and 5kg Naked Burger sauce were used in the process.
The result was a staggering 162.5kg, almost 40% heavier than the target weight of 100kg.
Sean Kearney is Finnebrogue’s Innovation Process Manager. Describing how they managed to make and cook the huge patty, said: “We were set a target weight of 100kg, but we knew from the outset we wanted to exceed that.
“The team included representatives from NPD, marketing and engineering; and together we designed and built everything, including a swing to aid turning the patty during cooking.
“That was perhaps the most challenging part of the record as we didn’t want to break the patty.”
He added: “The patty took almost nine hours to cook so the day was long. However, when we added all the condiments and Jack revealed the weight of the burger, we were elated!”
Once the record was verified by the Guinness team, the huge vegan patty was shared between staff members and distributed to a local homeless community.
Anthea McAuley, Finnebrogue’s Communications Manager, added that all ingredients had to be verified as vegan and “all stages of the record attempt was evidenced and verified by independent experts before the adjudicator confirmed a record was set.”
Commending Finnebrogue Artisan for its successful attempt, Jack Brockbank, Guinness World Records adjudicator said: “Huge congratulations to the Finnebrogue Artisan team for achieving the largest vegan burger.
“It takes some considerable planning and organisation to pull off a feat of this magnitude.
“They observed the strict guidelines provided by Guinness World Records to the letter, and it was a pleasure to witness such a dedicated team at work.”
