Red Bean Exports in Nicaragua Down 30%

The decline in red bean exports is caused by crop losses in the first term.

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Jorge Molina, executive director of the Center for Export Procedures (CETREX) stated that exports of all beans have suffered a total reduction of only 2%, thanks to black bean exports whose main market is Venezuela.

"One thing is red bean, in which there is a decrease, about 30 percent compared to last year, but if you look at exports of beans, these have fallen just two percent. But that is because the black bean black has grown more than a thousand percent, "said Molina to La Prensa.
