So far this marketing year, the U.S. has been Colombia’s top dry bean supplier. The top bean classes shipped to Colombia are navy beans (1,045 MT), light red kidney beans (482 MT), dark red kidney beans (421 MT), small red beans (379 MT), and pinto beans (290 MT).
Currently there is demand for navy beans, small red beans, and LRKBs. Black bean prices are up from January; demand is on the rise due to the influx of Venezuelan immigrants. The cargamanto blanco bean harvest that ended in January was good quality and quantity, dampening prices and lowering current demand for cranberry beans or pinto.
