“Working with the Roux Family and supporting the scholarship competition over the years has been, for us at Grunwerg and Global, not so much a commercial decision , but a real labour of love and admiration for what they have contributed to our hospitality industry”
Grunwerg, UK distributor of Global Knives, has been a key supporter of the prestigious Roux Scholarship since its launch in 1984, and continues to share a passion for culinary arts and the development of young chefs. Each year we are delighted to present the winning Roux scholar with a unique set of Global knives that will not only last a lifetime but will also provide them with a variety of different shaped knives, to suit all the needs of a modern chef.
Global kitchen knives were first designed in 1985 by the creative visionary, Komin Yamada in the Yoshikin factory of Japan. Global knives are handcrafted in Japan to very exacting standards and are used all over the world by professional chefs and passionate cooks who need a premium knife blade that keeps its edge under the most intense pressure.
Grunwerg is an award-winning supplier of innovative kitchen products specializing in premium quality stainless steel kitchenware. With over 70 years in the market place under our belt our exclusive brands include Global Knives, Tojiro and Commichef.
We come highly recommended by numerous chefs, prestigious hotels and Michelin star restaurants.
