    Goya Foods is shipping ready-to-serve meals and beverages to East Palestine so those affected by the Ohio train derailment don’t have to worry about ingesting contaminated meals. The New Jersey-based company is sending food and drinks that don’t require tap water to prepare, including pre-hydrated beans and coconut water that contains potassium. Goya is distributing the meals with the help of community resource center Way Station, Unanue said. The multi-billion-dollar company’s announcement comes just two days after the federal government finally sent Federal Emergency Management Agency officials to the site of the toxic train derailment despite originally claiming the tragedy...

    Get woke, go broke. We've seen it again as wokester efforts in company after company cut into corporate bottom lines -- Gillette, Disney, the NBA -- they get woke and eventually go broke. But for Goya Foods, its opposite is completely true, according to a new study -- Reject woke mob and all its wokester demands, and take it to the bank. Here's the backstory, according to Legal Insurrection:Back in July 2020, Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue came under fire from The Usual Suspects after he dared to praise then-President Donald Trump during a White House event announcing a “Hispanic...

    Bob Unanue: “We are on the precipice of a global food crisis. God created humanity. Humanity has created every way to destroy itself — from nuclear to biological to chemical. But now we’ve waged a war — we’ve weaponized food. In the Ukraine — between the Ukraine and Russia — they represent 50% of the world’s production of fertilizer, 30% of wheat, 20% of corn, 2.5 million acres of sunflowers, other food and minerals . . . “We’re going to have to tighten our belt and consume less. We’ve gone from oil independence to oil dependence. We’ve given up that...

    A painting of Venus in the nude, stretched across a green velvet sofa, by Goya has been given a bigger, brighter home at the Prado Museum. Pursuing a more “panoramic approach” to the painter’s oeuvre, the Madrid institution has placed Las Majas in a new gallery alongside two little-seen sketches of Saint Bernardino of Siena preaching to an Aragonese king, as well as a reclining Venus by Titan. It was a simple but effective renovation: the gallery walls were painted a lighter pastel color and the windows overlooking the Botanical Gardens were opened, naturally illuminating the iconic canvases for the...

    Goya Foods has voted to silence its pro-Trump CEO Robert Unanue following his recent television appearances questioning the results of the presidential election, The Post has learned. The Hispanic foods giant on Friday agreed to censure Unanue, 67, for controversial remarks in the wake of the deadly Jan. 6 invasion of the US Capitol building, including on Jan. 20 when he called Biden’s election “unverified” during an appearance on Fox Business. The vote by a majority of Goya’s nine-member board means Unanue must now obtain board permission before making any more media appearances, sources close to the situation said.

    Speaking in July at an event in the White House Rose Garden, Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue, who is of Spanish origin, said, “We’re all truly blessed … to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder.” Unanue’s praise of the president set off a firestorm among liberals in Washington. Former 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and Texas Rep. Julian Castro responded to Unanue’s remarks by tweeting, “Now their CEO, Bob Unanue, is praising a president who villainizes and maliciously attacks Latinos for political gain. Americans should think twice before buying their products.” Responding to a tweet from Igor...

    Amid riots, looting and violence in the streets, Goya Foods' CEO says polling showing President Trump's support rising among Latinos is because immigrants arriving in America seeking opportunity don't come to "tear things down, cancel things." A new Hill-HarrisX poll conducted last week found support for Trump among Hispanic voters growing by 2 points, from 30% in the last poll to 32%. After the 2016 election, The Atlantic noticed exit polls analyzed by the Pew Research Center showed that 28% of Latino voters supported Trump, and that figure had risen to 30% support as of February.

    Wow, these Maria cookies made by Goya sure are crispy. And only 25 calories each. We’ve got a boatload of Goya products in our pantry now, one of our pushbacks against the Left’s increasingly aggressive culture war on America. Goya Foods came under attack merely because its CEO, Robert Unanue, visited the White House and made some positive comments about President Trump. The Left has called for a boycott of the company, which specializes in Hispanic foods. Unlike many of their targets, Mr. Unanue stood up to the attackers. So, some of us are doing our part to fatten Goya’s...

    Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the impeached president, has brought the Goya Foods brand back under the harsh spotlight after thinking it was a good idea to pose with a can of black beans for some reason. The image posted to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter features the brand's slogan in English and Spanish. Now, Goya had already lost some of its credit in the Black and Brown communities that mostly consume its products after the brand's chief executive Robert Unanue noted in a White House meeting that "we're all truly blessed...to have a leader" like Donald Trump.
