Juliana Montagner is a director of Ximango and founder of the Mon Julli brand in southern Brazil. She was born in Ilópolis, the city that has the scientific name of the plant, Ilex Paraguariensis, precisely where her Italian great-grandfather began production in the late 1800s. Juliana developed the legacy she received, studying and deepening Camellia Sinensis and the universe of tea, with the mission of bringing the benefits of mate to the world. Thus was born Green Mate, patented by Mon Julli and obtained by processing mate shoots. The special production process yields a valuable health ally thanks to its tonic-stimulating and antioxidant properties, which is also excellent for the cosmetics sector.
