Largest box of pasta
Barilla Gıda A.Ş.
Turkey (Istanbul)
The largest box of pasta measures 1.54 m (5 ft 0.6 in) in height and 1.30 m (4 ft 3.8 in) in width and was created by Barilla Gida A.S. (Turkey), in Istanbul, Turkey, on 8 May 2012. Italy's Barilla, one of the world's biggest pasta maker, and Turkey's Migros Ticaret supermarket chain teamed up to produce a half-tonne box of penne pasta, which sells for 999 Turkish lira ($560), for charity. The boxes will be sold at supermarkets in Istanbul, Edirne and the resort port city of Bodrum. All revenues from the sales of the massive cartons will go to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
