About Us

Russums is a family business established in 1830 and still run by the Russum family today. We have equipped generations of chefs and hospitality professionals with the clothing and equipment they need to succeed in the hospitality industry over many years. During this time we have built a first class reputation for excellent service, quality and value, in partnership with the very best catering Colleges and Universities throughout the UK. In the early 1960s the local catering College asked Mr Russum if he could make a cost effective wallet to put knives in. News of this canvas wallet quickly spread to other Colleges throughout the country and soon Russums were supplying the knives, clothing and equipment that made up the essential starter kit all students need for their courses today. We believe passionately that good value should be the guiding principle for the products we supply – commercial quality, fit for purpose and made to last, offered at the best price. We are incredibly proud when people we meet tell us that they are still using the first knife they bought when studying thirty or forty years ago! If you have studied a catering course in the last fifty years then there is good chance that your first set of whites and knives will have come from Russums. Russums today is a modern multi-channel retailer supplying chefs and hospitality professionals throughout the UK and Europe.
