Coloured Chopping Boards
Coloured chopping boards are one of the many types of colour-coded culinary equipment in both professional and domestic kitchens. The purpose of the colour-coding system is to prevent cross-contamination between potentially harmful foods such as raw meat, allergens, and fish.
Our chopping boards have a machined finish, smooth to the touch but sporting visible texture, this machined finish helps to increase the grip on the surface of the chopping board, reducing the likelihood that you will slip while using it.
