That was the beginning of a story that would continue to evolve in the following years. They added tea cultivation to their activities in 1950. Ten years later they started using clonal selection and vegetative reproduction and thus improved an internationally approved, high quality product. Regarding yerba mate, the exhaustive selection process used in its propagation since 1956 allows the company to count on the best seeds.
Nowadays, Las Marías is the world's top yerba producer, and a renowned infusion specialist. Taragüi, Unión, La Merced, Mañanita and Punta de Oro are some of the brands of its products and are also the result of the natural and permanent evolution of a company in constant development.
