Fire up the flavour

For us, everything starts with charcoal. It is the fuel that sparks the texture and taste of your food.
So it's important to choose high quality charcoal that you can trust.

We’re proud of our range of high quality charcoal, and we’re proud of the progress we’ve made towards more sustainable products, from our new coconut shell briquettes to FSC®-certified lumpwood products. Find out more about our range of cooking and heating products below.
