Think Goya, think Hispanic and Mexican foods. Today Goya Foods is the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States. Founded in 1936 by Don Prudencio Unanue and his wife Carolina, both from Spain, the company has its roots in a small storefront in Lower Manhattan where it catered to local Hispanic families by distributing Spanish foods such as olives, olive oil and sardines.
