Latin American food and condiments supplier Goya Foods revealed plans Tuesday for a $80 million expansion project at its Brookshire, TX manufacturing and distribution facility. During the expansion, the company will acquire new food processing equipment to double the site’s current production capacity.
“Goya is committed to meeting increased consumer demand for our products from all consumers across the United States and abroad,” said Bob Unanue, the firm’s president and CEO, in a release. “We are grateful for the overwhelming support of the Goya brand and we are fortunate to be able to give back to communities around the globe donating millions of pounds of food through our Goya Gives program.”
The Brookshire site is located on a 130-acre farm that functions as a hub for production and distribution of Goya products in the western US. Goya said its decision to invest in an expansion of the site is linked to the location’s access to railroad transportation and global export opportunities, positive business climate, and the area’s workforce.
