Established in 1892 in the mountains of the northern edge of Provence, France, Berard specializes in handcrafting artisan products for the kitchen and home using carefully selected woods such as beech and olive wood. All of the wood used to make the products comes from FSC certified forests and the production is organized such that 100% of the wood is used; the natural imperfections add character to each unique piece plus all olive wood items are made from old trees that no longer bear fruit. Quality and design are evident in each traditional and contemporary kitchen tool the company creates. High-density olive wood construction with tight-grain structure is durable and naturally resistant to scratches.The product line includes olive wood spoons, cutting boards, salad server hands, spreaders, fruit bowls, ladles, mortar and pestles, spatulas, nesting bowls, bread baskets, olive boats, twine holders and more.
