Guayakí 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.

Guayakí is certified Fair for Life, a Fair Trade certification rooted in fair sourcing practices and responsibilities along the supply chain, from the Guayaki headquarters to the producers and processors in South America. Paying prices that exceed the market rate, and ensuring a Fair Trade premium with each purchase of Organic Yerba Mate, further propels the regeneration efforts of Guayakí within the yerba mate producer communities.
