Burning clean with less smoke and more oak, Oxford charcoal is sustainable and home-grown. We use all species of hardwood, which we cherish from tree to grill, with absolutely no sneaky artificial additives or chemicals added.

Our wood goes through a labour-intensive process to make the lumps of charcoal. It is first carbonised by being carefully heated in a sealed retort. This burns away the wood’s natural moisture, creating the perfect charcoal.

We pride ourselves on using pure English charcoal straight from British Woodlands. This reduces imported charcoal, preserves endangered rainforests and reduces transport miles.

Charcoal made the traditional way tends to burn with a higher heat. An intense, even cooking temperature is reached in 15 minutes. Economical to use, you only need a small amount of charcoal to produce sufficient heat. Find out how we became the largest charcoal maker in the UK and some of the amazing uses for charcoal by talking to one of our experts.

If the charcoal product doesn’t carry the GiB certificate it’s probably imported. Think COP26: Did you know that if you used our charcoal compared to imported you can help save 4Tn of CO2 for every bag purchased!

*Charcoal small fractures we try and reduce at source, however transport and handling by couriers will inevitably re-create these. We guarantee that no more than 5% of our bags will contain un-usable smaller fractures. If you find these help the environment by add them to  your soil its also great for plants, see our Biochar section.
