Olive Wood Mortar & Pestle
The skilled craftsmen at Bérard use their extensive experience and state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to create the best in quality and design for both traditional as well as innovative Bérard Kitchen tools. Now Bérard France introduces a range of products that provide not only the natural beauty and function of wood for use in the kitchen, but also stunning display and serving pieces for the tabletop. Each is unique: The graceful olive wood items are produced from very old trees which no longer bear fruit (mainly the branches are used, but the trunk sometimes as well).
Each piece is artisanally produced and Bérard aims to use the maximum of what the tree has to offer. Therefore, uniformity doesn’t exist and the little “imperfections” belong to this natural product. No two pieces are exactly alike, which make them all the more special.
Fully used: Berard production is organized so 100% of the wood is used. Instead of applying a chemical treatment in order to have uniform and smooth surfaces, Berard prefers to repair the little “imperfections” in the wood. The wood which is not suitable for production is used for heating the drying chamber and the company building in the winter, so no wood is wasted.
The olive wood for Berard items come from agricultural orchards and each item is produced by respecting the most important values of Bérard which are the people, the material and the environment.
