Reunion Island Coffee Ltd.
Reunion Island Coffee's flagship cafe in the Roncesvalles neighbourhood of Toronto

Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers

Here are some of the reasons why Reunion Island Coffee Ltd. was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2018):

  • In response to the growing popularity of single-cup brewing systems, Reunion Island Coffee made the conscious decision to offer only compostable coffee and tea pods as a sustainable alternative to the generally non-compostable or recyclable alternatives that mostly end up in landfills
  • Reunion Island Coffee continues to increase its use of certified coffees, including Fair Trade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance, to promote sustainable, environmentally sound and ethical business practices in its industry
  • Reunion Island Coffee works with the Trees for the Future organization to help rural communities restore their tree cover -- for every pound of its organic Rainforest Alliance-certified Sierra Verde coffee sold, the company plants 2 trees, helping to plant over 700,000 trees worldwide as part of an ongoing 5-year agreement
Reunion Island Coffee uses the Loring roaster, a green and efficient bean roaster
