Café William est une entreprise québécoise axée sur la production de cafés biologiques et équitables d’une qualité exemplaire, mais toujours accessibles. Nous sommes d’ailleurs la marque québécoise de café en grains biologique et équitable la plus vendue au détail au Québec. Pour nous, l’innovation, le développement durable et la responsabilité sociale sont au cœur de nos préoccupations au quotidien. C’est grâce à l’expertise et au dévouement de chacun que nous sommes parmi les plus importants importateurs de café Fairtrade au Canada. Les meilleurs grains de café proviennent de l’agriculture durable, et il s’avère que le monde en est de plus en plus conscient. Des communautés agricoles en santé font la différence, non seulement pour le café, mais pour le monde entier.
