Sobeys completes World’s Largest Potato Display

Sobeys has completed construction of their world record-setting display, featuring a final total of 92,500 pounds of Prince Edward Island potatoes, on Wednesday, October 3rd at their retail location on University Avenue in Charlottetown. This sets a new, unofficial world record for the size of a potato display, eclipsing a previous record of 80,000 lbs previously set in the United States.

The display consists of 10 pound paper bags of PEI potatoes supplied by Prince Edward Island potato growers, including WP Griffin Inc. in Elmsdale and Jewell’s of PEI Inc. in York. This record-setting display also kicks off a five day sale on potatoes at this location, ahead of the Thanksgiving long weekend.

To celebrate, Sobeys hosted a barbeque on Wednesday, October 3rd from 4 to 6 pm and on Thursday, October 4th from 11 am to 2 pm. Proceeds from the barbeque went to the Canadian Potato Museum in O’Leary, PEI.

As well, WP Griffin Inc. provided baked potatoes from their portable potato baking machine. Also on hand was “Tate,” the PEI Potatoes mascot and “Bud the Spud,” the mascot for WP Griffin Inc.
