ABOUT THE COMPANY

Acrevi LTDA is located in the city of Nova Prata, state of Rio Grande do Sul. The product is, for the most part, made at the branch located in Anta Gorda, a municipality near the Guaporé River (Vale do Taquari). The production chain also includes two other southern Brazilian states: Paraná and Santa Catarina. This region is characterized by the cultivation of yerba mate in a family-tradition way, preserving a centuries-long tradition that has improved over the years with the use of new technologies. This way we seek to combine the culture that identifies us with the various needs presented by the yerba mate market.

OUR COMPETITIVE EDGE

The natural properties present in yerba mate have sparked an increase in consumer interest, resulting in greater popularity also in other continents, such as Europe and North America. In southern South America, the use of yerba mate as a drink is a tradition that goes back thousands of years, being an indispensable part of many people’s daily lives.

Currently, the company is very concerned with the environment, society and the maintenance of good production practices, acting in several ways:

– Reforestation.

– Encouraging family farming through the conducted planting and herbal harvest.

– Harvest by hand, with care in choosing the branches to be used.

– Traceability of the lots, allowing the association of yerba mate with its planting location and time of harvest.

– We employ an innovative leaf-drying method which allows for the indirect heating of yerba mate, so as to free the product from smoke and impurities.

“The unity of the entire production chain is of fundamental importance for the delivery of a quality product which, when consumed, meets expectations and reveals the care used in the entire production process”
