No is the correct answer to this question. Goya is a Hispanic brand. It was founded by Prudencio Unanue Ortiz in 1936. The brand is based in food products and they are famous for a number of their products, including their vegetables, seasonings, and water. In 2020, a public boycott of the brand was started, after the CEO came out in support of President Donald Trump. As the boycott is still fresh, it is still unseen if it has affected the profits of Goya. This is because many Trump supporters began to buy the brand to show their support for the CEO.

It was in the year 1936 when Goya Goods was established. It was created by Don Prudencio and Carolina Unanue. These two people are immigrants from Spain. They saw that there is a possibility that they will make it big if they would start selling some Latin products. They have started selling around New York and New Jersey. As people started to know more about the products, they started to look for it more. Some people have assumed that this is Mexican in the beginning but you should know that this is more directed at lovers of Latino cuisine. What started out as a small storefront has become bigger until it is the brand that a lot of people are familiar with right now.
