Central Valley Bean Cooperative in Buxton, North Dakota has joined Cooperative Elevator Co. of Pigeon, Michigan to form Alliance Valley Bean, LLC in Larimore, North Dakota. The new Alliance Valley Bean has purchased the Larimore Bean Company and a receiving station in Sharon, North Dakota. Cooperative Elevator Company CEO Patricia Anderson is the CEO of Alliance Valley Bean. Central Valley Bean Co-op manager Gary Fuglesten is vice president of operations. Travis Carlson will manage Alliance Valley Bean in Larimore. Fuglesten says growers in North Dakota have been asking Central Valley to start processing and marketing black beans. He says Cooperative Elevator is a key participant in the black bean business and this partnership will give North Dakota growers access to more markets.
