In 1949, three engineer friends from France set out on their very first camping holiday with their families. They noticed the lack of portable cooking equipment available on the market for anyone travelling by road or camping outdoors.  The trio set out to create a simple, yet revolutionary innovation – the first portable energy solution. They introduced a small, blue, portable and refillable gas cylinder and named it the 'bidon bleu', and with this little blue gas cylinder, the brand Campingaz was born. From light stoves on backpacking adventures to powerful cookers on your favourite campsite, from gardening equipment to your hobby, shop Campingaz gas bottles online and in-store at DeWaldens Garden Centre. Campingaz cartridges and cylinders are your source of energy. Easy to handle, safe and efficient.
