Toscana Pellet® prioritizes good quality. A lot of years in pellet industry taught us that we can create long-term cooperation based on constant, invariable pellet parameters.
In order to avoid unpleasant surprises or complaints our company controls the quality dually:
- In producer’s factory – at the beginning while contracting new producers and periodically during the cooperation. The controlled pellet parameters are mainly: crumble percentage, durability, color, moisture;
- Periodically in our headquarter – in case of our new and current producers. We use specialist gauges and stoves where we burn chosen pellet in order to check its parameters (ash percentage, sinters presence, etc.).
Verified quality Toscana Pellet products resulted in gaining two most important certificates confirming its perfect parameters:
Certificate ENplus A1 (click here to see the document)
