Warehouse Manager

San Leandro, CA

At Guayakí Yerba Mate, we're about much more than just yerba mate: we believe yerba mate culture is an invitation to life. Our mantra, "COME TO LIFE," is an invitation to personal, social, ecological and cultural regeneration. The regeneration of the planet is at the heart of our business model. Every purchase of Guayakí drives positive global impact. We call it Market Driven Regeneration™, and it's the driving force behind everything we do.

Yerba mate. We love it, we drink it, but what, exactly, is it? Yerba mate is brewed from the nourishing leaves of the yerba mate species of holly tree (Ilex paraguariensis), which is native to the South American Atlantic rainforest. Of the six commonly used stimulants in the world: coffee, tea, kola, cocoa, and guarana, yerba mate triumphs as a balanced, naturally caffeinated option. Guayakí offers bagged loose leaf yerba mate as well as ready-to-drink yerba mate beverages in bottles and cans.
