Custom Charcoal Packaging


You’ve got nothing more than a packaging design

Send your existing design to us, tell us which size bags you need and which size charcoal lumps, and we’ll print your design onto our sturdy bags and pack them at our facility.


You’ve already got printed bags that you need to fill

Send your existing bags to us, or tell us where they are and ask us to pick them up for you. We can arrange for the collection of your bags from anywhere in the world and return them to you filled with our high quality charcoal at a competitive price. We recommend that your bags be minimum 3 ply to ensure quality and safe transport.


What we offer

Our own packaging facility in northern Namibia

NRC has constructed its packaging facility in the Otjiwarongo region of Northern Namibia on one of our founders’ farms, right where the majority of our charcoal is produced. The primary benefits for our customers include better quality control from production to sieving to packaging, as well as minimising travelling distance for the charcoal between production, packaging and shipping – which in turn minimises its carbon footprint.

A complete white-labelling service

In addition to producing our own brand of charcoal, we offer a white-labelling service for our customers. If you would like to create a new charcoal brand, or improve the quality and environmental credentials of your existing brand with sustainably-sourced Acacia-family charcoal, we can help.

We offer a door-to-door logistics service for all our charcoal, whether you’re buying our own brand or having your brand printed and packed by us. Simply choose whether you want your charcoal palletised or packed loose in your container, and whether you want it FOB (Free On Board) or CIF. (Customs, Insurance and Freight, arranged by us). We can deliver to a port, warehouse, or directly to your store.
Each standard shipping container can hold approximately 19 tons of charcoal.
