Dick is the only global manufacturer to offer a complete range of knives, sharpening steels and tools for chefs and butchers as well as butcher‘s equipment and grinding machines. The long tradition and experience in manufacturing, the highest level of quality and optimum handling make Friedr. Dick the world‘s leading brand for passionate and quality-conscious chefs – both in the hobby and professional sectors.

Traditionally Active in the Future

The long tradition and many years of experience gained in the manufacture of products for chefs and butchers enable Friedr. Dick to continue to develop innovative new products. Input from customers, especially end-users and our own ideas are converted into high quality products. Quality management and process documentation meet the requirements of DIN EN ISO 9001 and EMAS 2.

Environmental Responsibility

Friedr. Dick believes in environmentally and ethically responsible behaviour to preserve people‘s livelihoods and the environment. Our products have first-class functionality, a high utility value and a sustainable profile. Our goal is not to produce in countries where cheap labour keeps costs low. We specifically rely on state-of-the-art technologies in our production and craftsmanship, where it is necessary and appropriate. This conserves resources and reduces emissions. This guarantees you the highest standard of quality. The EMAS Eco-Audit Certificate documented that Friedr. Dick has set itself
ecological guidelines and complies with them. Friedr. Dick falls below the minimum statutory requirements for environmental compatibility.
