- Difficulty in the cultivation of yerba mate
Yerba mate plants come from the subtropical region of South America. They prefer humid, hot climates that grow plenty of rainfall.

Climate change is affecting food system sustainability by influencing farmer livelihoods, consumer choices, and food security through changes in the natural and human components of agroecosystems. Annual precipitation and heavy rainfall events are becoming more common, especially in the spring. An excessive amount of spring rain slows crop establishment, interrupts planting, increases the prevalence of several fungal and bacterial crop diseases, and might cause labour problems due to delaying field operations. Variations in temperature and precipitation directly impact the quantity and quality of yerba mate production and indirectly impact the scheduling of important farm operations and the economic effects of pests, weeds, and diseases. Adverse weather conditions also hamper the supply chain and transportation of yerba mate. Furthermore, Yerba mate production is a process that may take at least 5 years from seed to drink. It's tested, controlled, and requires great skill and precision. Each step of Yerba mate from cultivation to processing and packaging require specific conditions that are difficult to fulfil.
