I’ve designed a cutting board that I’d like to produce in quantity. I’m looking
for wholesalers of food safe baltic birch or maple plywood.

Can somebody give me some wholesalers websites?

Greetings Getz….... Sorry…... I can’t help you there. In fact, I’ve never heard of food safe plywood. That’s a new one on me. I would be curious to know if they make it, though. Keep on keeping on…........ later.

I doubt if there is a “food safe” plywood in any species. Birch and Maple are excellent materials for cutting boards – in solid boards. The veneers, however, are far to thin to last under actual cutting before you’re into the plys.

I believe Sawkerf is correct. I wouldn’t trust plywood for being food safe. Inner cores of the plywood mat be different. Anything with a open grain, makes more room for bacteria..
