Goya and Productos Nativo have in common the goal of responding to our consumers demand for variety and quality," says Mr. Joe Perez. "Given the wonderful inter-changes of culture occurring in Spain and throughout Europe, non-Latin American consumers are also looking now, more than ever, for ways to expand their palette and lifestyles. We derive great pride in being able to offer Latin Americans in Spain and, indeed all of Europe, the authentic taste of home," concluded Mr. Perez.
