Goya Foods — Corporate Giant

“If it’s Goya, it has to be good!”

Big Red Car here on a grayish day, y’all. Throwing a curve in your direction.

You probably know who Goya Foods is — the largest Latin cuisine grocery in the US.

They have been sponsors of the New York City Puerto Rico Parade for sixty years, starting in 1958. Other sponsors include Coca-Cola, the New York Yankees, AT&T.

But, Goya Foods pulled their sponsorship this year because the parade will honor a terrorist.

Good for Goya!

The terrorist

This year’s Puerto Rico Day Parade honors Oscar Lopez Rivera. Oscar was a bomb maker and deadly bomber who ran with the FALN (Puerto Rican independence agitators, terrorists, murderers, bombers) crowd which bombed more than a hundred locations in New York and New Jersey in the 1970-80s.

He left a trail of blood and death until he was caught and sentenced to fifty-five years in prison. In prison, he tacked on another fifteen for an attempted escape plot.

You will remember that President Barack H Obama, a guy who never resisted the temptation to show love to an imprisoned terrorist, commuted his sentence and ordered his release.

Rivera called himself an independence fighter whose aim was to free Puerto Rico from the United States and to transform that lovely island nation into a Cuba inspired Marxist-Leninist Communist paradise. He was a worm like brain terrorist and murderer, nothing more.

Pro note: You know that a certain Hillary R Clinton, from New York, was trolling about to snag the Puerto Rican vote in the great state of New York, right? Get the connection? Comrade Obama releases a Puerto Rican terrorist and, the rest is history, as they say.

OK, so that’s nasty, right? The politics and optics of it.

Goya Foods

Goya Foods was founded by two Spanish immigrants, Don Prudencio and Carolina Unanue. It is a family business. They first immigrated to Puerto Rico before moving to New York.

Their foods are of the highest quality and freshness and are sourced directly from the US, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Spain.

The company has more than $1,500,000,000 in annual sales and has made the leap from the neighborhood bodega to Costco and Sam’s and BJ’s Wholesale. It is a mainstream American brand with twenty-six state-of-the-art manufacturing plants and distribution centers in Texas, California, Georgia, and New Jersey.

The company employs more than 4,000 and distributes more than 2,500 products. They are leaders in the low sodium, gluten-free, organic, and kosher food arenas.

They started in Manhattan, moved to Brooklyn, and are now headquartered in New Jersey.

In 2005, they began an aggressive growth plan with an investment of $500,000,000 in their expansion.

This is a fabulous American success story and proof of the power of the American Dream. Bravo!

Bottom line it, Big Red Car

Dear reader, the Big Red Car applauds companies who do NOT honor terrorists. Simple message. The Big Red Car applauds Goya Foods for pulling their sponsorship of the Puerto Rican Parade in New York which is honoring a murderous terrorist.

“If it’s Goya, it has to be good!”

But, hey, what the Hell do I know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car, but I know a responsible corporate citizen when I see it. Bravo, Goya!

    Yes, one of the items on my list of Hildabeast’s worst crimes was getting that terrorist out of jail in hopes of getting some votes.

    Such total devotion: Elsewhere rarely see the total devotion NYC/NYT has for the Democrat crooks.

    Once again BRC alone, needing a paint job or not, is a better news source than all of the Hildabeast, DNC, propaganda MSM together. However hard BRC works to get out the news, the MSM works much harder not to!

    Goya Foods, a huge success story, pulls their 60 year sponsorship of the Puerto Rico Parade in NYC because the parade, this year, honors a terrorist. Huh?
