Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States, will invest $80 million and expand its manufacturing and distribution facility in Brookshire, Texas.
Goya's Texas facility that sits on a 130-acre farm has served as the prime hub for the manufacturing and distribution of Goya products in the West, and provides key access to a skilled workforce, a favorable business climate, railroad transportation, and a launching pad for global export.
According to company officials, the expansion includes the purchase of new, state of the art food processing equipment that will enable the company to double production capacity in order to meet the increased consumer demand for its products.
"Goya is committed to meeting increased consumer demand for our products from all consumers across the United States and abroad. We are grateful for the overwhelming support of the Goya brand and we are fortunate to be able to give back to communities around the globe donating millions of pounds of food through our Goya Gives program," said Bob Unanue, President and CEO of Goya Foods.
This investment supports the production of Goya's authentic, high-quality, and nutritious product line including the company's expanded organic offerings, company officials said.
Goya manufactures, packages, and distributes over 2,500 high-quality food products from Spain, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central, and South America. Goya noted its products have their roots in the culinary traditions of Hispanic communities around the world.
