BEES manufactures a small amount of barbeque charcoal which is available to buy from the BEES office.
The charcoal is made from timber produced as a result of coppicing and thinning tasks at local reserves so by buying the product you are not only supporting nature conservation in the Bradford District, but you will no longer need to buy imported charcoal. Most of the charcoal in the shops is imported from South America and is made from mangrove and other hardwoods. Habitats are destroyed in the process and there are also issues of child labour and the fuel needed to transport the product across the globe.
British made charcoal is of high quality, lights easily and comes to cooking temperature quickly. We cannot guarantee the sun, but surely there is no other reason not to buy Bradford charcoal! Get in touch.
If you are interested in drawing charcoal let us know, we will make some when our production starts later in the spring.
