Brazil Bean Imports
September 11, 2018

From the U.S. Dry Bean Council

This past marketing year, Argentina has supplied 87 percent (81,204 MT) of Brazil's dry bean imports. Other suppliers have been Bolivia (8,043 MT), Canada (3,147 MT) and the U.S. (1,188 MT). Most of the beans imported from the U.S. entered Brazil in September 2017 (1,066 MT).

China, once a major black bean supplier, has practically disappeared from the market, with imports from that origin totaling a mere 194 MT, down from 65,692 MT over the same period the previous MY. In late June, Brazil signed a customs cooperation agreement with Mexico and approached that country about the possibility of Brazil importing Mexican drv beans in exchange for Brazilian rice. Mexico responded that it would consult with its NAFTA partners first and then take the matter up with Brazil again in August.
