Profile Provided By: Company Website
Runa is a Brooklyn based social enterprise that brews beverages from guayusa tea (pronounced gwhy you sa ) and improves the livelihoods of Amazonian farming families through its supply chain. When brewed guayusa has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee double the antioxidants of leading green tea products and a smooth clean taste.Revered by indigenous communities for centuries guayusa is also consumed by native hunters before venturing in to the jungle at night. Made from a leaf not from a lab Runa is clean energy that powers you through your day. Runa supports over 300 farming families and is pioneering a new way of doing business in the Amazon. Runa s products are sold in over 8000 stores across the country and are an effective alternative to the legions of artificial beverages and energy drinks on the market.
