UK sourced briquette suppliers?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find out if there is a UK firm that makes wood briquettes and sells them wholesale.  I am only interested in UK made and entirely UK sourced material.  

 

I am stopping selling firewood and I am considering selling briquettes instead - not on a big scale, just enough to satisfy my existing customers - maybe 12 to 20 pallets per year.  I will not consider any material sourced outside the UK for environmental reasons, so UK only please.  Is there anyone out there?

Are you not going to sell the small offcuts from the milling any more?!

No I think we will sell bundles of unprocessed milling waste instead.  The problem is the time and space it takes up I really need to use for more profitable avenues!  Hence I am considering just buying in briquettes as it would take up so little space and need no processing, but still provide a product for our customers with UK provenance.

 

I have been in touch with Penntree who sell briquettes as Hotblocks, which looks good.  I am trying to compare prices with logs so I can work out if it is viable for me and my customers..

Try Hotmax. Like others have mentioned it’s made by Bedmax. What area are you in?

The only problem I have with these is they appear to be wrapped in plastic.  I really couldn't buy these in bulk   I have found a briquette maker just across the water north of Bristol, who do wrap them in paper.  Only problem is the paper bags are highly branded.  I would prefer to buy plain packed briquettes so I am still looking.
