In 1936 Don Prudencio and Carolina Unanue emigrated from Spain to the United States and established a storefront in Lower Manhattan. What started as a small family business to distribute Spanish food such as olives, olive oil and sardines to the local Hispanic community evolved into a multinational, family-owned business. With a selection of quality condiments, pantry items, beverages and frozen foods totaling 1,200 offerings under the Goya Foods label, the company has established itself as the authority on Hispanic cuisine. This product diversification honors the founders' heritage to provide authentic Latino foods that make each meal a memorable experience for family and friends. The more than 2,500 employees worldwide produce products that are available in local grocery stores and supermarket chains throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and international markets. Its manufacturing and distribution centers are located in Secaucus and West Deptford, New Jersey; Bayam n, Puerto Rico; Seville, Spain; Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Angola, New York; Webster, Massachusetts; Bensonville, Illinois; Miami and Tampa, Florida; Houston, Texas; and the City of Industry, California.
