Food Preparation & Presentation: The Raw Materials


Row & Sons, part of the Partwell Group, supply an extensive range of high-quality equipment to an equally-extensive range of companies and organisations. From catering equipment retailers to individual shops, supermarkets, restaurants and takeaways, our unrivalled collection of food preparation and presentation solutions is second to none.

Here we look at some of the materials Row & Sons use to manufacture products from our range.


For well over a century, Row & Sons have been creating butchers' blocks using this natural material and our product portfolio has extended to include boards used for food preparation and serving. We now use several hardwood materials to create these items, including beech, oak, American walnut and industry-standard Canadian Rock Maple. All of our hardwood products are hand-crafted using our many years of experience, knowledge and expertise.


Compression-moulded polyethylene is strong, durable and infinitely versatile, qualities that have made it one of the most commonly-used plastic materials in the catering industry. The high density of the material guarantees that it can easily withstand the rigours of everyday use in demanding catering environments and it can easily be produced in any colour, making it the ideal material for creating products designed to be part of a colour-coded system. From cutting boards to food covers and beyond, polyethylene is often the go-to material of choice for professionals.


Made using eco-select paper sourced from trees harvested under the strict guidelines of NASFS (North America Sustainable Forestry Standards), Roweca is an envi­ron­men­tally-friendly choice of material. As functionally practical as it is elegantly stylish, this hygienic material is used to create cutting and food presentation boards with universal appeal in the catering industry. The cutting surface is designed to be knife-friendly, causing no dulling of blades even with repeated usage.
