What Really Triggered The Mob To Come For Goya Foods


BOB UNANUE, CEO, GOYA FOODS: Good afternoon, Mr. President, good afternoon everyone. It’s such an honor and such a blessing to be here in the greatest country in the world, the most prosperous country in the world, and we continue to grow. And that’s what we are here to do today. 

Our company was founded in 1936 by my grandfather who left Spain at only 18 years old. He did not know where he was heading, but he was heading and looking for opportunity and prosperity. And he found it in this great country. Today, our company is a multibillion-dollar company with thousands of employees, and with facilities all around the globe. We have a tremendous group of what we call “La Gran Familia Goya”, the Goya Family- the great Goya Family. And these are people- I told the President earlier- “we haven’t gone back to work, we never stopped working”. Because when I asked our group, our family, “this is going to be a tough thing”. They said, “look, Bob, if we don't do it, nobody will.” And they stood up and they worked and continue to work day and night to provide much-needed food and nutrition to this country. 

Today, it gives me great honor- and by the way, we are all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder. And that’s what my grandfather did. He came to this country- to build, to grow, to prosper. And so we have an incredible builder, and we pray. We pray for our leadership, for our President, and we pray for our country- that we will continue to prosper and to grow.
