It’s that time of year – the Stir It Up magazine Reader Survey 2019 is here with your chance to win £250 in Amazon vouchers!


Each year we conduct a reader survey across the Country Range group to find out how the content of the magazine is being received, and to gauge its effectiveness.

With a readership of over 100,000 professional chefs, caterers and business owners across the whole of the UK and Ireland, the Reader Survey is vitally important in helping us to ensure that Stir It Up remains the industry leading publication it is currently as well as to plan future features and articles.

Every year we introduce new features where relevant in response to your feedback as well as tailoring the focuses of other features to help support you in the areas identified.

Last year, no doubt following on from Sir David Attenborough’s ground-breaking Blue Planet series, you told us that environmental issues had leapt to the top of your agendas, and asked for tips and advice on potential changes to be more sustainable and ethical. In response, in January this year, we launched our new Green Gauge column, which is dedicated specifically to addressing green issues.

We’d love to know what the readers think of our new addition, along with all of our other existing features, and are equally excited to hear what 2020 might have in store in terms of editorial to ensure we keep giving you the advice, product information and menu inspiration youneed.

This year we’ve introduced digital focused questions to try to analyse the current use of websites and social platforms as well as what a caterer would be looking for when searching online.
