The story of this Canadian brand began with a single farmer in South America. Born into a coffee-growing family, Pedro learned about coffee from the ground up – literally. He saw first-hand the effects of spraying chemicals on the coffee trees – on birds, insects and workers. That’s why he decided to dedicate his energies to organic production and standing up for the rights of his fellow farmers.
After hearing this story of passion and commitment, founders Bill Szeremeta and Rama Dehgan were deeply inspired – that’s when Pedro’s Organic Coffee was born.
Famous in Canadian foodservice, now available on local shelves
For over 30 years, Pedro’s has been recognized for excellence in the foodservice industry, serving hotels, restaurant chains, coffee bars, golf courses and ski resorts throughout Canada. Now this family-owned and operated Canadian brand is available in stores and London Drugs is proud to be one of Pedro’s most dedicated retailers. Choose from exotic varieties such as Equator Blend and Rainforest Espresso, perfect served hot or over ice.
Pedro’s takes their Canadian values right through the whole supply chain
“The direction we’re headed is simple,” says Bill Szeremeta, Owner of Pedro’s Organic Coffee, “We want a safe future in a protected environment. We set a high standard for ourselves and use our family values as a compass. Pedro’s Organic Coffee is proud to be a Canadian company that supports the local economy by utilizing the resources and tools around us.”
The team at Pedro’s never forgets their namesake – and that Pedro represents all the hard-working, trusted farmers who grow their high-quality organic coffee beans. It’s a recipe that leads to great results all the way to your morning cup. “Be passionate about the work you’re doing. It will be a long and challenging road,” Szeremeta says, “But if you truly believe in the product, it will pay off in the end.” We’ll toast to that.
