As the Hispanic population continues to grow in The Bronx and everywhere else all over this great country. Latinos are now the fastest growing ethnic demographic in the USA.

So it is no wonder that that 75-year-old Goya Foods is the nation's largest Hispanic owned food company and continues to expand to serve our country's Latino population growth.

Goya was started in a small storefront in Lower Manhattan, New York, catering to local Hispanic families by distributing Spanish foods such as olives, olive oil and sardines. Driven by the belief that there was a growing consumer market for high-quality, fresh-tasting, Latino foods, the Unanues family infused their personal philosophy throughout the company. This commitment to excellence is the cornerstone of Goya's popular credo, "If it's Goya, it has to be good". The result of this simple, yet deeply resonant pledge is the evolution of Goya Foods into a leader in the Latin American food industry, with operations spanning the globe.

This huge company is based in Newark, New Jersey, where they've counted on beans and brains to build a food empire. The boast over 30 varieties of high quality, great tasting beans and peas. Goya offer their customers countless ways to prepare delicious home-cooked meals, like the ones mama prepared for the entire family to enjoy.

Believe it or not, they offer almost as many variety of beans as there are Latinos in America. Our favorite here at City Island Images are Black Beans, which are rich in flavor and elegant in texture. We have also tried their classic black bean soup, refried beans, arroz con frijoles (rice & beans) and a whole lot more.

GOYA also offers Roman, Pinto, Canary beans...etc.
