It all started with a great idea, an idea that came to life. An idea that was not only bold, but perhaps even a little crazy. The big idea? A cargo sailboat that travels all the way from South America to bring our precious coffee beans to Quebec. Our ambition? To create the world's most sustainable coffee.

Wind-powered shipping

Powered by the wind and sailing towards sustainability, our first cargo sailboat has embarked on its maiden journey from South America.

Sustainable Sourcing

As one of Canada's leading Fairtrade coffee importers, our journey starts at the source. We work with Fairtrade cooperatives and farmers who are committed to organic certification.

How we make a difference

Future-ready facilities

Completed in 2023, our new eco-friendly plant meets the highest standards in sustainable building and will fully run on hydroelectricity, one of the cleanest forms of energy on the planet.

Build the Future

“We believe in the power of new ideas, caring for the planet and standing together."

— Rémi Tremblay, CEO, Café William
