Who We Are
Quality: The Secret Is a Step-by-Step Process
» What makes Las Marías special is its all-in-one nature as a grower and processor of yerba mate.
The yerba mate plants are sprouted and gown on our own lands; the best of the crop is selected and carefully harvested; the plants are processed step by step and then packaged. Nothing is left to chance, and everything takes place under the watchful eyes of our own experts. This is the secret behind our products and what separates them from all the rest.
Our Main Objective: Natural Foods of the Highest Quality
