Country Range Group Partners with The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation

Country Range Group (CRG) has established a three-year partnership with The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation to actively contribute to the fulfilment of its charitable objectives, including support for initiatives like the Natasha Clinical Trial.

The partnership will see the buying group and its members work alongside the charity to raise compassion, understanding and, crucially, vital funds to help make food allergy history.

Natasha’s Allergy Foundation, established in memory of Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, a young girl who tragically lost her life to a severe allergic reaction, is dedicated to supporting individuals and families affected by allergies. The foundation works tirelessly to raise awareness, provide resources, and advocate for better allergy management and education.

Turner Price’s partnership with Natasha’s Allergy Foundation through Country Range is a testament to its commitment to making a positive impact beyond the realms of the foodservice industry. It reflects a shared vision of creating safer environments and fostering understanding for those navigating the challenges of severe allergies.

As well as becoming CRG’s chosen annual charity for the next three years, The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation will become an editorial partner of the buying group’s magazine, Stir it up, whilst helping to provide employee engagement across its entire workforce.

Martin Ward, chief executive of the Country Range Group, said: “We’re proud to be entering into a partnership with The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation and are committed to their aims to help make food allergens a thing of the past. Although some important policies have been introduced since Natasha’s tragic death, there’s still so much more that can be done to prevent and eradicate allergic disease. We hope that this far-reaching partnership will bring about positive change and offer hope to those living with allergies.”

Nadim Ednan-Laperouse added: “We’re delighted to welcome the Country Range Group to Natasha’s Foundation and are overwhelmed by their generosity to name us as their chosen charity for the next three years. Our vision is to make allergy history, something we wouldn’t be able to do without the support of companies like the Country Range Group. Their knowledge, expertise and reputation in the foodservice sector is second to none so we’re thrilled we’re able to partner with them and their incredible independent members on our groundbreaking work.”

Nadim Ednan-Laperouse OBE, co-founder & trustee of The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation, also attended the Country Range Group’s 10th anniversary of its ‘An Evening With’ annual celebration at Abbey Road Studios on 14 December 2023.
