In 1956 Mr. Lauro Raatz and his wife Sara decided to found an industry that could offer a product 100% national of a very high quality.
The first years were of hard work and efforts. They started selling in bulk in a small pantry, then by order and customers’ need, they started selling the products in brown paper packages and 300 packages daily in the surrounding area. The Raatz family held on with an unyielding faith in the destiny they wanted for Paraguay.
Every day brought new challenges that would their test characters and temperament, but faith helped this couple find the strength to achieve what today is Yerba Mate "Pajarito"... a true:
The company grew in quality and production quantities year after year. Today new and modern automatic facilities and a permanent staff of over one hundred workers proudly join the production capacity of 30.000 daily kilograms of yerba mate. Reaching the 5 continents around the World.
Lauro Raatz S.A., is more than 60 years of experience; it is the triumph of a man in search of noble products to achieve a better life quality with products at an international level.
