Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsThe company has achieved a change of the working system in the region by improving the trade and the working conditions for the harvesters of mate tea. In general the harvesters have worked for prices below the minimum, sleeping in establishments with precarious conditions and having inadequate and dangerous transport. The work of Guayaki achieved to change and improve the situation granting them a daily wage higher than the minimum established by law, dignified working conditions and accomodation where they feel comfortable to work. Guayaki also have worked with other small producers of mate tea to whom they have offered a higher price than established by law, which permits them to improve their quality of life. With the donations given to the local hospital and schools, the harvesters receive a better treatment in the community, as they are very often discriminated and marginalized. This has contributed to unite and strengthen the community.
