Stir it up is published ten times a year and includes the latest food and industry news as it affects the education, health and welfare, hospitality sectors of the independent catering industry. Our team of journalists report on all the latest food and catering industry news, as well as writing fascinating features on a range of relevant topics. The magazine also includes advice columns from industry experts, along with recipes and interviews with foodservice’s leading figures.

Where it all began…

The Country Range Group conducted a customer survey and answered the caterers’ call by turning the existing promotional booklet-magazine hybrid into a stand-alone customer magazine to support customers in all corners of the foodservice marketplace navigate the catastrophically stormy waters following the great recession.

The first issue of Stir it up as you know it today was published in February 2008, and alongside the magazine a separate promotional insert was launched.
