The Guinness World Records' record for the largest pot of yoghurt measures 1.68 m (5 ft 6.14 in) in height, has a maximum diameter of 1.39 m (4 ft 6.72 in) and contains 599.65 kg (1,322 lb) of Greek yoghurt. The pot was made by GreekTown on the Danforth BIA (Canada) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on 11 August 2013.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest pot of baked beans; it contained 5,600 litres (1,231.83 UK gal; 1,479.36 US gal), and was achieved by Davcev Stojan and DASTO (both Macedonia) outside the Orthodox Church at Sarcievo Village, Macedonia, on 7 August 2012.
The team led by Arlen Braud and Michelle Gallagher set the record at 5,800 pounds at the Larose Civic Center in southern Louisiana.
The event was part of Major League Eaters' World Record Gumbo Eating Competition. Gerald Danos helped build the pot which took about 700 hours to make. It was then filled with 1,500 pounds of shrimp, 500 pounds of crabs and 40 gallons of oysters and was consumed by the hundreds of visitors at the event.
Before that, the world record was unofficially held by the community of Tuscaloosa, which set a record two years ago with around 3,000 lbs. of the seafood concoction.
