The Duluth Port shipped out 200 containers full of kidney beans this weekend. This is the first containerized shipment out of the Twin Ports. Chippewa Valley Bean is exporting these beans to Europe. This type of product would typically move through coastal ports, but logistical issues caused significant delays the past two years. Chippewa Valley Bean President Cindy Brown cited a shipment that sat at an Eastern port from February until it was loaded in June. Photo credit: Chippewa Valley Bean
