Guayaki Rainforest Projects

Our South American team lead by founding partner, Alex Pryor, is dedicated to finding the best mate in the world. 

Over the past decade, Alex has built relationships with growers committed to sustainable forest production in Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil.   We work with these growers to produce yerba mate which is rainforest-grown, certified organic and fairly traded.

Kue Tuvy - The Ache Guayaki Preserve

We are very honored to work directly with the Ache Guayaki people in a revolutionary project, one of the 1st indigenously run, sustainable preserves. This project is an inspiration for other indigenous communities as they see the Ache Guayaki flourish.

Bird Conservation

The conservation of yerba mate in the natural habitat is important to biodiversity conservation; and specifically bird conservation.
