For several years now, Cono has focused on growing and processing black beans.

Sustainable black beans from your black bean exporter

Enjoyed by meat eaters and vegetarians alike, black beans are one of the most versatile legumes. Nicknamed ‘turtle beans’, black beans are medium-sized, oval shaped beans with a glossy black skin. Called ‘frijoles negro’ in Spanish, black beans are popular throughout Latin America and a staple in many South American, Mexican, Spanish and Caribbean dishes. Like other common beans, they have been grown in Central and South America for thousands of years and were introduced to Europe in the 16th century by Spanish and Portuguese explorers.

Black beans bursting with vegetable proteins

Black beans are very rich in plant-based protein and fibre, as well as calcium, iron, folic acid and potassium. Due to their shining dark coating, they are also loaded with powerful compound antioxidants which may improve heart health. With their soft texture and a sweet, earthy flavour with a hint of mushrooms, black beans are great in stews, soups, dips and salads, and can be used in burritos or tacos. They can even be added to baked goods, such as brownies to add protein and fibre! Thanks to their versatility, they make the perfect accompaniment to meat-based dishes or as a vegan meal and are frequently served with rice.

In the north of Argentina there are ideal conditions for growing black beans.
