Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada with Ocean Brands set a Guinness World Record™ then donate to DBFB
As part of Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada’s 10th Birthday celebrations, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada and Ocean Brands worked together to set a Guinness World Record™ for Largest Canned Food Mosaic (logo), with the canned food being donated to the Daily Bread Food bank in Toronto.
How many cans of food were donated
More than 9,000 cans of food were used to recreate the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada logo and measured an impressive 59.30m2 (which is about the size of 13 king size beds!)
The cans were generously donated by Ocean Brands – Jackie Mendoza, Marketing Director of Ocean Brands, added: “Ocean Brands is not only thrilled to be a part of this significant milestone of Ripley’s, but also glad that we can support our communities by feeding those in need.”
Staff spent hours putting the mosaic together while a Guinness World Records™ adjudicator looked on. After declaring the record, the mosaic was dismantled and the food was donated to the Daily Bread Food Bank in Toronto.
“We are delighted to receive this generous food donation from Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada at a time when the need is highest. Their creativity and engagement with Daily Bread Food Bank and our mission to end hunger is truly impactful, and deeply appreciated.” Neil Hetherington, CEO, Daily Bread Food Bank.
