Kraus

We are a family business that produces yerba mate and tea in Colonia Santo Domingo Savio, San Ignacio, Misiones Province, Argentina. Our company has a strong pioneering spirit that we inherited from our ancestors and continue to maintain. Our quality is guaranteed by various certifications such as organic, fair trade and kosher, as well as our years of experience.

Kraus' beginnings date back to 1894, when Francisco Kraus, a young Austrian full of the spirit of adventure, emigrated to Buenos Aires with his friends. Our location in Misiones offers breathtaking nature with intense colors - red earth, green native vegetation and a deep blue sky. Our yerba mate and tea plantations are located in the middle of this beautiful jungle, surrounded by babbling brooks and a variety of wildlife such as deer, tatúes, anteaters, capybaras and different species of birds. The backdrop of the old Jesuit Guarani Missions of San Ignacio Miní, Loreto and Santa Ana, as well as a mountain and theme park, makes our place even more special.

At the heart of our Yerba Mate Kraus is our unique drying system, developed and introduced by Juan Angel Kraus. It involves a flow of hot air generated by the indirect heat of a boiler, which allows for a smokeless product with a mild flavor and delicate aroma. We produce Kraus Yerba Mate in an environmentally friendly and organic way, without the use of agrochemicals to promote biodiversity. Natural processes such as pest control and nutrient recycling play an important role.

After harvesting, our yerba mate kraus is processed in a unique system that provides smokeless products. In doing so, we adhere to Fair Trade principles to protect the environment, avoid child labor, promote workplaces with excellent health and safety conditions, support gender equality and ensure fair wages.

In addition, workers at Kraus share in the profits and democratically decide in assemblies how that money is spent. This approach demonstrates our commitment to a just corporate culture based on solidarity.
