Forty-two employees of the Uday Samudra Leisure Resort at Kovalam readied a record-breaking sandwich, which is eight feet taller than the previous held record made by O’Brien’s, an Irish Sandwich Bar that made a 42-feet tall sandwich in 2003.

Rajagopal Iyer, the corporate director of the resort said, that the employees started making the sandwich at 12 noon on Tuesday and it was completed by 10.30 p.m.

“We are presenting this sandwich to the entire nation as a gift. For quite sometime now, no record has been created on food products in India. We have done this, made the sandwich and broken the world record,” said Iyer.

The giant sandwich has 350 slices of bread, each slice measuring 2.5 x 2.5 feet and weighing 6 kilograms.

It required 45 kilograms each of cucumber and tomatoes, 40 kilograms each of boneless chicken, sausage, ham, apple and mayonnaise sauce.

Further, around 25 kilograms of fish, 75 kilograms of lettuce leaves, 35 kilograms of onions and 150 kg of butter were used.

“We had some problem initially, but we broke the sandwich record eventually. A ground staff officer and one manager were also a part of this team,” added Iyer.

This giant sandwich is all set to break the world record. Also, this attempt to make the world’s tallest sandwich coincided with World Food Day, which is celebrated on October 16. (ANI)
