As our starting point, we chose to make all of our boards in solid Oak due to it's natural beauty , sustainability, strength and anti-bacterial properties. Our boards are treated with five applications of food safe mineral oil with a final treatment of wax.
Oak, specifically, exhibits a substantial hygienic performance and indicates an antibacterial effect, caused by a combination of the hygroscopic properties of wood and the effect of wood extractives. Oak shows the highest decrease rate in bacterial titre, followed by beech and ash. Our Oak Chopping Boards are carbon neutral & All of our Oak is sourced in accordance with the The European Union Timber Regulation (EUTR).
