Row & Sons was established by Joshua Row in 1880 to provide butchers with long lasting wooden chopping blocks and butchers’ shop solutions from quality hardwoods. Our comprehensive product range and industry knowledge has increased over the years, together with our commitment to innovative product design. From working with traditional hardwoods, to introducing colour coded, polyethylene chopping
boards to the market in 1976, customer need remains at the very heart of what we do.
Today, we continue to offer classic and contemporary chopping and service board ranges, with practical food safety benefits, as well as making custom-made designs. We continually innovate and share new concepts, giving product guidance and care routines to meet an individual customers’ practical needs, as well as providing products which represent our customers and their businesses. We want to help build that memorable customer experience, where identity and personality shine through, in both quality and style.
We have always listened to the needs of our customers and we understand the pros and cons of using different types of food surface materials across the food and catering industry. Wood, plastic, technical and composite materials are all different options to consider.
Butchery, food preparation and food presentation boards are all are essential pieces of equipment directly linked to both food hygiene and style. Whether you are a Butcher, Chef or a Restaurant Manager, or even a keen home chef, it is important to make the right choice.
Our whole team are committed to providing the best; in product design, quality, longevity, value, service and advice. Customer service is at the heart of what we do and has been for 140 years.

Our collections are comprehensive and offer hygienic solutions to fulfil all butchery, restaurant and commercial kitchen needs. For businesses who want to differentiate themselves, we can bring creative serving ideas into reality through our bespoke services, with materials at the very forefront of design.
We continually invest in new technology, updating machinery and manufacturing processes, driving innovation and increasing efficiency, keeping us at the cutting edge; ever improving our offer, for our customers.
Whether you would like care advice, practical information on the properties of a food surface material, or advice on when to replace, we are always happy to share our experience with you. With great product care, comes great value and we offer both guidance and products to help you achieve the very best life for your Row & Sons product. Different food cutting or chopping surfaces and food service boards, require the correct care routines to help keep them in tip-top condition for longer. Correct care includes how a product is used or stored, as well as how it is cleaned.
For our Heritage Butchers Blocks we provide a free care pack to every Butcher purchasing their block directly from Row & Sons. Our care pack includes our Care and Maintenance Guide for Wood Products, a French Pattern Block Scraper and a 250ml bottle of our Row & Sons Wood Care Oil. For our other hardwood products, we also sell our Wood Care Oil as a separate product, for customers wanting to re-oil their wood products and surfaces. Our Wood Care Oil can be used safely on food service boards, cutting and chopping boards or fitted wood kitchen pieces.
