Goya Foods has announced it will expand its North American processing centre in Brookshire, Texas, by adding 324,000 square feet of production warehouse, distribution warehouse, production office and auxiliary buildings.
The expansion will help the company reach new consumers and strengthen the Goya brand throughout the US and internationally.
At the site, located west of Houston, Goya produces more than 2,500 food products from the Caribbean, Mexico, Spain, Central and South America. The project will see the facility almost double in size.
Built in 2014, the site formed part of Goya’s $250 million investment for a global expansion to support consumer demand of Goya’s healthy product lines where processing equipment, hydrostatic bean cooker and cannery operations are capable of producing more than 1,000 cans per minute.
Goya Foods president Bob Unanue said: “With the growing need for good nutrition, it’s an opportune time for Goya to expand. For more than 81 years, Goya has not only positioned itself as a leader in the Latin American food industry and a trusted American brand, but as an iconic symbol of the Hispanic culture.
“Our commitment to excellence is the cornerstone of providing our consumers with products that offer ‘good taste, good for you and good value’.”
The expanded facility, with an expected completion in 2018, will also feature a total of 29 new dock doors for domestic and international distribution.
Founded in 1936, Goya Foods is a Hispanic-owned food company and has established itself as a leader in Latin American food and condiments.
