THE AMERICAN NATIVE SUPERFOOD
Here at the American Yaupon Association, we are committed to spreading awareness of the native Yaupon Holly, and its amazing properties. The American Yaupon Association also supports growers, processors, packers, and distributors of Yaupon through research, funding, and outreach. The AYA was founded by pioneering companies and individuals in the Yaupon industry, and it represents a self-started effort to establish industry standards, safety systems, and a durable product pipeline.

FOOD SYSTEMS & CONSERVATION
Ensuring Profitability & Environmental Stewardship
As a burgeoning agricultural industry, Yaupon can succeed where others have failed to incorporate responsible environmental stewardship into their business models. Yaupon is a native crop, which does not require soil amendments or chemical treatments to turn a profit.
