GOYA BEANS GO ORGANIC!

- Latin American Food Leader to Offer Organic Product Line

Goya Foods, Inc., the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States, today announces the distribution of its new line of organically-grown beans. A perennial favorite among Latin American food lovers, Goya’s Premium beans are now offered in an alternative variety, 100% USDA certified organic. The pre-cooked beans are fresh-tasting and a great source of fiber and protein for health-minded consumers. They are available in the following varieties: red kidney beans, black beans, pinto, chick peas and navy beans. “Goya is excited to offer this new organic option to our consumers,” said Mr. Joseph Perez, Senior Vice President. “We always take great pride in producing products that are authentic and easy to prepare. Now with our new line of organic beans, we bring our consumers another option for the natural tastes and goodness that are found throughout Latin America,” he continued. Goya Foods has over 1,500 products for distribution and the bean line is among its signature offerings. In recent years, the Latin American food leader has developed numerous alternatives for health-conscious consumers, such as low-sodium beans and low-sodium seasonings. These new offerings complement Goya’s premier, heart-healthy Olive Oil which the company has produced since its inception in 1936 and, which has been rated as a “best overall” by a leading consumer publication.  “Our consumers are very loyal to our products and, in turn we try to be responsive to their changing tastes. Offering an organic line of bean products is a natural progression for Goya Foods and is in keeping with our commitment to producing the best-tasting, highest quality food for our customers,” concluded Mr. Perez.
