What we do

Nigretta of Hamilton is a woodworking social enterprise that creates chopping boards under the are-able Social Enterprises umbrella. The Nigretta workshop includes an on-site store, where the items produced by the Nigretta team are available for purchase. Our products are handcrafted by our employees with a disability. Our employees benefit from a supervised mentorship program in which they’re provided with support, training and encouragement.

Aside from creating top-quality wooden chopping and serving boards, Nigretta also has a branch offering work in other areas, such as eWaste recycling, sorting and packing.
