Spar Group Ltd, South Africa, has recently achieved a Guinness World Record by producing 35,000 cupcakes for the world’s largest cupcake mosaic.

This record was achieved by using a Riggs Autopack Series 1 micro-fill depositor supplied by Riggs Autopack’s South Africa agent, John Pelucci of National Packaging Systems.

National Packaging Systems was established in 1983 as a manufacturer of vertical form, fill and seal machines, volumetric depositors, auger fillers, feeding systems and conveyors for the food and beverage industry. They’ve had a long working relationship with Riggs Autopack and provided many successful installations of Riggs Autopack machinery into the South African food production industry.

All the cupcakes that were used in the mosaic were donated to various charities and all the money raised went to “Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer” – a total of R164 750.00.

Belinda Barlow of Spar Group Ltd said “We were very impressed with the performance of the Riggs Autopack depositor and would recommend them for use in our stores”.
