1956 Catering Supplies is based in the birthplace of stainless steel at our Sheffield warehouse. It may come as a surprise to you that the first official reference to a 'cutler' (maker of cutlery) in Sheffield is from a tax return of Robert the Cutler, which was filed in 1297. Harry Brearley created a major cutlery revolution in the 1900's when he invented stainless steel, revolutionising the cutlery industry in an area already famous for producing high-quality cutlery since the early 16th century.

Widely renown for its reputation for exceptionally high-quality Sheffield steel and being an industrial powerhouse, Sheffield has excellent transportation links, and its central location allows 1956 Catering Supplies to ship across the united kingdom with ease from a location with a long, proud history in cutlery manufacturing.

Our team has a vast wealth of experience working with some of the largest manufacturers and international importers of catering supplies. We have taken that expertise in-house for 1956 Catering to provide the very best catering solutions available in the UK for all bars, restaurants, kitchens and across all catering industries be they commercial, home or hospitality.
