BROOKSHIRE, TEXAS — Goya Foods, a maker of Latin American food and condiments, is expanding its North American processing center in Brookshire with the addition of 324,000 feet of production warehouse, distribution warehouse, production office and auxiliary buildings.
Built in 2014, the facility was part of a $250 million investment and features ultra-modern processing equipment, hydrostatic bean cooker and cannery operations capable of producing more than 1,000 cans per minute. The expansion nearly doubles the size of the facility, where the company produces more than 2,500 food products, including low-sodium, organic, diet and sugar-free options.
The expansion is expected to help the company reach new consumers and strengthen the brand throughout the United States and in Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and Asia. Slated for completion in 2018, the expanded facility will include 29 new dock doors for domestic and international distribution.
