We believe people everywhere can benefit from the bounty of the Amazon without destroying it, and that indigenous knowledge has a critical role to play in our growth as a global community. We work with indigenous people to share the secrets of the Amazon by creating new markets for products that help the Amazon, its people, and their culture thrive. Currently, Runa is focused on creating markets for beverages created with Guayusa ("gwhy-you-sa"), a native Amazonian tree leaf that contains more caffeine and double the antioxidants of any tea.
