UPDATE: GREEN BEANS

September 12, 2022

West Coast supplies are snug due to inclement weather in Mexico and Guatemala; demand has shifted to the East Coast. Ready-Set-Serve Trimmed Green Beans are available; however, packer label may be substituted as necessary.

  • East Coast stocks are adequate; Michigan, Wisconsin, and New York have the highest volume and best quality
  • Mexico’s central region of Guanajuato has experienced significant rain over the last two weeks, causing disruptions to harvests
    • Quality is reduced due to excessive moisture
    • An improved weather forecast should increase volume this week
    • The Baja Peninsula is recovering from Hurricane Kay; growers are seeing production delays and accessing damage
  • California supplies are limited due to the recent heatwave
  • Guatemala experienced disruptive weather in early September; green and French beans will be extremely limited over the next two weeks
  • Expect higher prices this week
