Riggs Autopack, of Lancashire UK, a market leader in volumetric depositors and filling machines, transfer pumps and conveyor filling lines, are proud to announce that their depositor was recently used in the setting of a new Guinness World Record - for the world largest cupcake mosaic.

The Spar Group Ltd in South Africa used the Riggs Autopack series 1 micro-fill depositor to fill more than 35,000 cupcake patties that were then cooked and iced to make the world's largest cupcake mosaic.

The cupcakes were donated to various charities and the money raised from the event (Rand 164,750.00) went to the charity - CUPCAKES 4 KIDS WITH CANCER.

Company spokesperson Belinda Barlow said 'We were impressed with the performance of the Riggs Autopack depositor and would recommend them for use in our stores".

The Riggs Autopack range includes semi-automatic and automatic depositors that are suitable for dosing hot & cold liquid, semi-liquid and suspended solid goods.  Not restricted to jar filling of dips, pastes, preserves and condiments, they also successfully deposit a wide range of ready meal products such as stews, mashed potato, casseroles and curries, and are able to deposit fragile vegetables and cooked meats in sauce with particulates up to 38mm cubed as standard.

Riggs Autopack is represented in Oceania by HBM Packaging Technologies.
