Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsGuayakí imports organic yerba mate from South America to create a range of ready-to-drink beverages, loose leaf yerba mate, and yerba mate bags. By harvesting yerba mate that has been cultivated under native South America Atlantic rainforest trees, Guayakí provides indigenous communities and small-hold producers with a renewable income stream as well as the ability to steward and restore their land. Our partner communities and restoration projects are primarily based in the yerba mate growing regions of Argentina, Paraguay, and Southern Brazil. Guayakí’s 2020 mission is to steward and restore 200,000 acres of rainforest and create 1,000 living wage jobs. Guayaki’s vision holds that yerba mate culture will power our Market Driven Regeneration business model to regenerate ecosystems and create vibrant communities.
