Unique products for your kitchen and home since more than 120 years!
Since 1892 the company BÉRARD, located in the Provence region in France, is specialised in manufacturing products of high-quality olive wood from the Mediterranean.
Each piece is produced in manual work by skilled craftsmen. The olive trees replace those trees removed for agricultaral purposes. Berard shows much care and respect for the environment, in the harvest and production of the high-quality olive trees. Berard tends to repair the little imperfections in the wood instead of applying a chemical treatment in order to have a uniform and smooth surface.
The durable and elegant olive wood articles will be an enjoyable part of your kitchen for many years.
Care and Maintenance of Olive Wood
For the best results in maintaining the beauty of these products, Bérard suggests that you do not use strong detergents. Simply hand wash and rinse the pieces in warm water and leave to dry in a vertical position – do not soak.
To prevent the wood from drying, occasionally apply some vegetable oil, food safe mineral oil or beeswax.
Do not put in the dishwasher.
These suggestions will help keep the products in good condition for many years.
