    Background: RADGONE, YUGOSLAVIA

    The star attraction at the Radgone Agricultural Fair on August 26 was, believe it or not, a salami. The result of hours fog hard work by Mr. Sasha Ribnikar of the Mercator-Nanos company in Pstojna, the salami is the largest in the world. It weighs 300 kilos and is 3.80 metres long (or exactly four metres with its wrappings) and 1.10 metres in diameter. It is fastened together with 110 metres of rope. Mr. Ribnikar needed four days to roast the salami which is made of twenty different ingredients. These include pork, beef, milk, eggs, and spices, but the exact proportions are a trade secret. Other salami producers in Yugoslavia are now threatening to create even larger sausages but the Mercator company refuse to be outdone. They say that for every salami produced larger than theirs, they will manufacture an even bigger one. But for those who want to sample a piece of the sausage, there is bad news. The salami is not for sale. It will be exhibited again in Zagreb in the Autumn at one of Europe's largest international fairs.
