Swift-Lite has over 50 years worth of knowledge in manufacturing shisha charcoal and was a leading pioneer in designing the instant lighting charcoal tablet.
Quick Lighting Hookah Charcoal was first producted in 1959 in London by BL Delaunay and Co Ltd. The company was taken over by Blackman, Pavie and Ladded Ltd in 1982 when the Swift-Lite Charcoal name was registered. The company expanded significantly over the next 30 years.
The company now exports to over 27 markets and its achievements were recognised in 2004-2008 with the Queen's Award for Export.
