About the American Dry Bean Board
January 17, 2006

The American Dry Bean Board (ADBB) is made up of leaders in the bean industry with the common goal of educating U.S. consumers about the benefits of beans. Through the Bean Education & Awareness Network (B.E.A.N.), the ADBB gives a voice to the bean industry and provides information to consumers and media about the good taste, nutritional value and versatility of beans.

ADBB Membership

The ADBB is successful because of the commitment and support of its members, which include bean growers, processors and canners.
