First of all, you should know that most of the shisha charcoal around the world is imported from Indonesia. Why? There are many reasons to answer this question. One of them is, Indonesia is a country with the largest coconut plantation in the world. Coconut trees can grow in Indonesia because of the country’s tropical weather and climate. The locals in Indonesia like to drink coconut water and therefore a lot of coconut shells are wasted in the end. With that, this large amount of coconut shell waste is processed by charcoal factories to be formed into charcoal briquettes that have better quality than wood charcoals. Therefore, charcoal briquettes made from coconut shells waste are a good product to save the world from the massive tree logging in this era.

Then, how to import shisha charcoal from Indonesia to your country? First, you need to know what kind of shisha charcoal products are of good quality. For information, good quality shisha charcoal will have a small ash content and also have white ash in color. If you already know the quality that you want to buy, then contact the coconut charcoal factories in Indonesia, including “Glowing Charcoal Indonesia“.

For your information, the price range of shisha charcoal is between $1,150/MT FOB starting from the lowest quality, up to $1,450/MT FOB for the highest quality. If you find offers above this price range, it can be said that you are dealing with a middle-man or trader instead of a first-hand factory owner like us.

You can come to Indonesia to visit the factory directly, or you can ask your shisha charcoal supplier to send samples to your country. So that you don’t have to waste time and money flying to Indonesia just to see the products from that factory.
