Laboratory tested for hygiene, camphor laurel timber was found to contain natural anti-microbial chemicals (also known to occur naturally in edible products) making it the most effective food preparation surface with regard to reducing microbial growth.
Wild Wares chopping boards have been extensively tested by a NATA approved laboratory for the four most common food viruses (E coli, Salmonella, Staph and Listeria).
The tests carried out on our boards showed that bacteria were unable to survive after just a short time on the boards.
The table below shows the test results. The timber for our boards used domestically and commercially for the past 7-10 years showed ZERO bacteria growth.
Wild Wares boards are NATURALLY AND PERMANENTLY ANTIBACTERIAL
