Waykana’s guayusa social impact and community

Waykana’s guayusa social impact and community

Communities are what hold the social fabric of our society together, and at Waykana social responsibility is at the forefront of all that we do. 

As the first producer of the green Guayusa leaf, and the world's largest bulk supplier of this natural energy, Waykana has been at the forefront of sustainable guayusa cultivation. We’re more than just a tea company, it is the people we support who have made our product what it is. 

In collaboration with over 100 Kichwa Indigenous communities, our mission is simple; to invigorate and share with the world our natural herbal tea for energy, while preserving Pacha Mamma, the Amazon Rainforest and partaking in the cultural preservation of the guayusa tradition. Our community is our priority, and giving back to our farmers means we’re implementing training programs, offering 15% more than the fair price for their work, and investing in local communities. 

Our products are grown and cultivated free from deforestation, pesticides and harsh chemicals, and we’re proud to promote agroforestry production systems, which means we’ve significantly reduced rural poverty in Ecuador’s Amazonian communities. Waykana is an example of how scaling our production to over 10 countries around the world can be done both ethically and sustainably. We’re proud to be certified and awarded as a positive organic quality product by the USDA, Kosher, and the United Nations


From our loose leaf tea to our guayusa powder, each and every one of our products carries a positive impact to our Kichawa farmers and to you, our customers. 

Thank you for being a part of our family. 

Your best is just around the corner.

With love,

The Waykana Community
