Fruit supplier, Fresh Del Monte and retail operator Jewel-Osco, collaborated on the display. They agreed to create a big banana stand outside a Jewel-Osco store in Westmont. Their effort paid off, as a Guinness adjudicator declared the fruit display, named Banana Bonanza, to be the “world’s largest fruit display.” The Westmont Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau posted photos of the fruit display and declared the Guinness World Record award on its official Facebook page. They noted that the fruit display took three days to make while sharing the photos. They also added, “The bananas were distributed to the crowd present, and the balance is being donated to the food bank for distribution throughout the region.” Check out the full post here.
