During the late fall and winter seasons, nothing adds warmth to a plate like generous helpings of tender, juicy, and fresh green beans. Important to many classic and traditional meals, they are also the stars of many new tasty and creative recipes. Green beans help us to be our healthiest. When we eat our green beans, even as adults, we just know that our mothers must be smiling.
Right now is one of the best times to experience the fresh, plump, nutritional powerhouses that green beans are. Harvested fresh from verdant fields in Sinaloa, Mexico, our quality green beans are available now through March. Our green beans are packed and labeled under the Ciruli Brothers™ and Pueblo’s Pride® brand names. They come in a 15 and 30 pound case, as well as a 20-pound case with individually packed, stylish retail-ready bags.
Ciruli Brothers green beans are smooth, uniform dark green in color, and wholesome. High in fiber, they contain many well known vitamins such as C, K, A, and more. One less known mineral that green beans may be an excellent provider of is silicon – something very important for healthy bones and connective tissues. Now we know why our moms were so happy to serve us green beans, and even happier when we ate them!
All of us grown-ups want to serve the best quality nutritious food that we can to our families. Thankfully, there are many delicious and easy to make recipes currently available that make that possible. In our next blog, we will post some of our personally favorite recipes that let green beans take center stage.
For those of you who are retailers, we offer the following advice:
• Make sure you pair with a trusted supplier ( like Ciruli Brothers) to maintain open communication and stay on top of the latest market trends, pricing, and product quality. This will not only keep you informed, but will also open dialogue to discuss promotions and special pricing, particularly during special holidays and peak volume periods.
• Merchandising tips: Follow back room handling instructions to ensure the best possible shelf life for your beans. When on display, place them on the cold rack and rotate displays frequently to remove crushed or withered beans. This will provide for a more uniform and fresh selection of beans for your customers.
