East Coast green bean supplies are tightening as they transition south to weathered fields in Georgia. Demand will be shifting to California and Mexican grown beans to help fulfill East Coast orders.

  • Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Trimmed Green Beans are available
  • East Coast supply has transitioned to North Carolina and Georgia where production is slow to start
  • Supply is limited due to Hurricane Idalia disrupting the planting cycle in late August
  • The month of October will be challenging on the East Coast until Florida crops get underway in early November
  • California regions of Fresno and Watsonville have good volume and new fields starting this week
  • The Mexico growing region of Guanajuato has good volume and outstanding quality due to favorable weather conditions
  • Expect higher prices on the East Coast during the month of October due to sourcing raw product from California and Mexico
