Cupar (Scotland), July 5(ANI): A bowl of porridge made in Scotland has smashed the world record for being the largest ever made, weighing 690 kilograms.

The porridge, enough to feed 2000 people, was made at the annual Highland Games in Cupar, and beat the previous record of 171 kilograms, set in Manchester last year.

Guinness World Record adjudicator Craig Glenday confirmed it as a new best.

"The chances of this record being broken soon is unlikely. This should remain a Scottish record for a long time," the Scotsman quoted Glenday, as saying.

The record attempt was made by a team from Cupar Round Table with the help of food firm Scott's Porage Oats.

"Today, we have achieved our goal of breaking the record and put Cupar back on the map," said Craig Manson, Cupar Round Table chairman.

Hayley Stringfellow, Marketing Director of Scott's Porage Oats, added: "We are thrilled to have set a new Guinness World Record."

"Cupar is the home of Scott's Porage Oats, so it's only fitting that the record for the biggest bowl of porridge should be held here," Stringfellow added. (ANI)
