Our charcoal has been very highly rated in North American and European markets by grilling and BBQ experts due to the mix of hardwood species used as well as for the presentation, consistent sizes and quality of our lump and briquettes.  The woods that are   used in our blends are a mix of species from the dry subtropical forests of the Chaco region of Argentina, where they have been grown for centuries.

We do not use wood from any tropical or rainforest and there are no issues with deforestation related to the production of our charcoal.

The wood from branches is collected in accordance with local regulations preserving the health of the forest. Coppicing is a common technique used. Coppicing is a traditional method of woodland management, by which young tree stems are cut down to a low level, or sometimes right down to the ground. In subsequent growth years, many new shoots will emerge, and after a number of years the cycle begins again and the coppiced tree or stool is ready to be harvested again. Typically, a coppiced woodland is harvested in sections, on a rotational basis. In this way each year a crop is available. This has the side effect of providing a rich variety of habitats, as the woodland always has a range of different aged stools growing in it. This is beneficial for maintaining the biodiversity of this sensitive region. As a matter of fact, charcoal production in Argentina is an economic incentive to preserving forests that could, and would, otherwise be cleared and destined to soybean or other plantations.
