UPDATE: Limited Green Bean Supplies

June 14, 2019

Green bean supplies are tightening. Inclement weather in the main North American growing regions will cause a supply gap from mid-June through late July.

  • Ready-Set-Serve Trimmed Green Beans are limited; packer label will be substituted as needed
  • High temperatures have caused the Georgia and North Carolina seasons to end early
  • The Ohio season is delayed due to rain; instead of ramping up in late June, adequate volume is not expected until mid- to late July
  • Excessive heat is keeping yields low in California and Mexico as well
  • Expect active markets and limited stocks through late July
