The charcoal industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and a money spinner for interested investors. The United Kingdom alone consumes more than 60,000 metric tons of charcoal annually, out of which about 70% comes from tropical Africa. Other countries around the world equally consume charcoal in great quantity.

Charcoal is mainly produced through a process called Pyrolysis, a process that involves burning of tropical hardwood under high temperature in the absence of air. Charcoal is readily available all over Nigeria, hence, we source for the charcoals of the highest quality for our clients and package them for exportation.
