Our charcoal is made of 100% hardwood such as maple,
birch and beech logs.
The hardwood comes from nearby forests which are
certified based on responsible harvesting and long term
forest management. Only timber not already valued by
local sawmills is used in our charcoal kilns. Our
operations are fully integrated into the sustainable
management of the forest where our hardwood comes from.
The slow pyrolysis process (wood carbonization without
oxygen) occurs in kilns containing refractory bricks to
ensure strict quality control and complete conversion of
wood into charcoal. This manufacturing technique leads
to a high carbon content of more than 78% which
contributes to long cooking time and delightful wood
flavors. Our charcoal is screened prior to its final
packaging. The larger charcoal lumps are preferentially
selected for our BBQ clients and for professional
catering. Large charcoal lumps ensure fast lighting,
excellent heat diffusion and optimum cooking on BBQ.
