A great event for 30 years of Country Range!

A great event for 30 years of Country Range!

Last week, #TeamHarvest made their way to Telford for the Country Range Group Annual Exhibition - this year we celebrated 30 years of the buying group.

The event kicked off on the Thursday, with the Annual Exhibition taking place in The Telford International Exhibition Centre. Over 400 people including suppliers and CRG members were in attendance.

There was plenty of delicious samples to taste and plenty of insights and useful information to learn from suppliers. With current trends still pointing towards plant-based and free-from diets being the big steer on industry menus.

The finale for the day featured speakers from CRG Chairman - Ton Christiaanse - thanking suppliers for building strong relationships with the group. Followed by Commercial Director - Martin Ward - outlining goals for the buying group over the coming years. Head of Marketing at CRG - Emma Holden - encouraged delegates to continue to work closely together and collaborate in order to support caterers around the UK and Ireland.

Then, onto the Masquerade Ball! This was a great evening, giving everyone the chance to let their hair down with a chance to enjoy drinks and a 3 course dinner, all whilst being entertained by Brian Conley! The dance floor was packed all night, proving that everyone had a great night! Over £5,000 was raised for Hospitality Action by guests attending, this will be matched by CRG themselves, making the donation a total of £10,000!

We would like to thank Country Range for a great event and we are looking forward to next year already!
