This has been a quiet month in the Kidney Bean Market. We‘ve been doing our best to raise prices this fall but haven’t been able to get the job done. Many canners and packagers are waiting on purchasing until after the holidays. The dollar has also been gaining strength which never helps in our quest to supply the world with the best Kidney Beans.
DRK prices are stable at $34.50 - $35/cwt, but we were able to increase LRK to $34.50-$35/cwt as well. We’re looking at 2017 contracts and still trying to pin down prices, we hope to have something available by year end. For planning purposes, we think prices for DRKs will be between $36-38/cwt. and LRKs at $35-37/cwt.
