Goya Foods moves to muzzle its Trump-supporting CEO

New York Post
By Josh Kosman

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.

“Bob does not speak for Goya Foods when he speaks on TV,” Goya board member and third-generation owner Andy Unanue told The Post last week leading up to the vote. “The family has diverse views on politics, but politics is not part of our business. Our political point of views are irrelevant.”

2. Me too

I bought a big ass bottle of the totale seasoning before that trump bullshit happened with goya, literally the week before all that bullshit. The goya multi spice totale is delicious especially on chicken but I won't be buying more when it runs out.
It will last a year.

4. Like Trump sending soybean sales to Russia, burning the US bridge. Goya is dead to me.

I found better alternatives.

8. $1.5 billion in revenue last year.

Someone is buying it. Just because we don't doesn't mean that no one does. They seem to sell a lot via grocery chains and places like Target and Walmart.

10. I misspoke. I meant no one who wants real Mexican food will buy Goya.

6. I guessed a long time ago that the family would clip his wings.

Expect his “retirement” sometime soon.

9. This is refreshing news. Not that I'll ever buy Goya again.

I had a few cans in my pantry and I used them up, and that was it.

12. We've gone out of our way to avoid Goya

Not sure if it makes a difference, but it feels good to vote with my money.
