Let us not miss the yerba

Yerba mate consumption in April reached the highest level in the last 10 years. With the quarantine, we're taking a lot of mate.

As we are

There may be a   pandemic   , an alien invasion or a war of flying robots, but there is something that Argentines are never going to stop doing:   take mate   . Thus, in the context of the crisis that was created by the quarantine,   yerba mate consumption in April reached the highest level in the last 10 years   .

According to the   National Institute of Yerba Mate (INYM)   , some 24.3 million kilograms of yerba mate were sent to the domestic market from the mills and fractionators. This is the best brand for the fourth month of the year of the last decade.

Different factors explain this increase in consumption. The first, of course, is that we are   more time at home   . That means that consumption at home increased. In addition, at first, the   fear of shortages   which generated the quarantine announcement caused many people to stock up on those products they consider essential. And what is more essential for an Argentine than yerba mate.

In this way, despite the complex scenario generated by the coronavirus pandemic, INYM noted that yerba mate consumption remained firm, both in the domestic market and in export shipments.

Which containers do we prefer for our yerba?

The   half a kilo containers   have been preferred by consumers for a long time. During April, half-kilo packages accounted for 58.09% of mill outputs to the domestic market. Then, with 35.74%, the one-kilo packages were placed; with 1.55%, two-kilo containers; and, with 0.97%, quarter-kilo packages.

We're missing everything, but we don't miss the mate.
