This bibliographical review brings information about the productive chain of beans, an essential product in the Brazilian diet, but present in several countries of the world. Beans are a source of protein, fiber, minerals and vitamins, allowing for healthy eating for easy access. Being, Brazil is the third largest producer of beans in the world, losing only to Myanmar and India, also the main consumer of beans in the world, having to import part of the beans consumed in Argentina. Due to iss, the bean culture is a promising crop, since the supply does not meet the domestic demand, being necessary the application of technologies that improve the yield and facilitate the cultivation. One of the obstacles of the crop is the susceptibility of the deterioration of the grains to store them, because, these grains stored, the commercial value tends to fall due to loss of quality. The objective of the work was to raise information on the productive chain of the beans. Periodicals, books, and information literatures were explored. Therefore, in view of the above, it was observed that in Brazil, the crop still needs to stimulate cultivation to supply domestic demand, improve storage conditions, invest in genetic improvement to maintain grain quality, and the study is necessary of new alternatives of destination for the residues generated by the processing and beneficiation of grains.
