A call to Boycott GOYA !

mrskjun(9)

How dare the CEO go to the White House and praise Trump.

Julian Castro and AOC along with some other WOKE lefties are calling for a boycott of GOYA. A company that employs over 4000 mostly Hispanics in 26 locations. A company that has donated over a million cans of food to food banks and a million lbs of other food items since the pandemic. A company that was the first one to donate to Puerto Rico after the hurricane. Tear this company down!!

Sad isn't it, a company that has done that much good, throws that all away by going to the WH and praising Trump, somebody who is the enemy of Mexicans/Puerto Ricans and Hispanics.

Hopefully next CEO won't make this miss-step again.

I'm going to boycott Goya (and I do use a lot of their stuff). There are other companies who can fill the gap for my Mexican food cravings.

Cowtowing to the money changer is thought to be a path to riches. GOYA isn’t the only company who has to stroke Trump’s ego. I wonder what he promised them to get their praise? He stated he was called by the President, which tells me he was made a deal so Trump could court Latinos.

I can't, I only use their olive oil, for years. It's the closest to what I ate growing up.

But I'm troubled by their CEO's endorsement of Trump, can't imagine what he thinks Trump 'built' other than divisiveness, racism & ever-more reasons to distrust his 'Administration' & I use that term loosely.

GOYA made the decision based on money. Trump called him and most likely made an offer if he would make a statement praising him. I’d be interested to know what he was promised, if so. It is hard to turn down a call from the President especially knowing how vindictive Trump can be.

Hopefully next CEO won't make this miss-step again.

The cancel culture is alive and well...how dare the CEO of the country's largest Latino-owned food company, who comes from an immigrant family, express a belief that's out of line with the progressive narrative! Off with his head!

Apparently the crime of his words characterizing Trump as a builder outweighs what his company has done to help people. In addition to his promise yesterday to donate a million cans of food, his company did this, back in April:

Goya Foods, America’s largest Hispanic owned food company, has made an initial donation of over 200,000 pounds of food, equivalent to over 170,000 meals, to organizations, food banks, food pantries, and soup kitchens, as well as over 20,000 protective masks across the nation. Goya will continue to donate to those facing hardships during the COVID-19 pandemic.

...Donations were made directly to Catholic Charities of New York and Newark, Food Education Fund, The Sisters of Life, The NY Common Pantry in partnership with New York City FC, City Harvest in New York City, The Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Secaucus Food Pantry, families of Cristo Rey High School, Jersey City Medical Center, The City of Jersey City for the Homeless, Holy Name Hospital, and Kingsborough Community College; Caring for Friends in Philadelphia; Feeding South Florida; The Houston Food Bank, Latino Learning Centers Inc., Tejano Center for Community Concerns, Texas Feeding Alliance and Catholic Charities of San Antonio in Texas; The Salvation Army Little Village, Catholic Charities Casa Latina and Children's Hunger Fund in Chicago. With the support of
each organization, the food has been and will continue to be distributed to families, children, homeless and the elderly communities.

But none of that matters. Words must be punished!

I honestly don't get why it's cancel culture. I have a right to spend my money any way I want, as do other people. "Cancel culture" (which is a BS phrase by the way) is not a new phenomenon. In the sixties there were plenty of companies that got boycotted.l American as apple pie, indeed!

If there is a noticeable decline in sales, then there is anger over the CEO's actions.

Whatever happened to let the customer decide if a company made the right or wrong decision? That argument was trotted out during the baker issue with a gay couple. Conservatives said if people want to shop elsewhere then they will. A boycott is simply a well-publicized decision to shop elsewhere. Conservatives decided to boycott Nike too.

In these days of social media, it is easy to share your opinion on your shopping habits. Welcome to the modern world.

Video of the speech quickly made the rounds on social media, with many
consumers upset that “America's largest Hispanic-owned food company”
would support a president who has called Mexicans rapists, puts immigrant children in cages, and continues to attempt to dismantle DACA.

I've always been very picky about where I spend my money and who gets my business. I try to avoid supporting any business whose values I dislike. I guess I've been boycotting and "cancel-culturing" (that is a BS, meaningless term) for decades now -- ahead of the curve. :-) I would ask, too, what's the big deal?

It’s a big mistake for brands and corps to endorse politicians IMO. I think it is far better to remain silent and keep your politics and religion out of your business when you are serving the public. There will most likely be a backlash so why even go there unless you have something to gain?

I,too, think it is unwise for an owner of a business to publicly endorse political candidates because no matter who the business owner supports, some customers will be offended. Remember how this worked out for the owner of Papa John's Pizza and the right are conveniently forgetting the owner of Chik-fil-a issued another statement saying it welcomed eveyone's business once it became clear that some people were boycotting its outlets. Boycotts do not necessarily have to end in a business closing to be effective.

The CEO of Goya said that a boycott of his products would be a limitation of free speech. That statement is so incendiary that I will now boycott Goya, although I had not intended to before. The CEO thinks that free speech is only for him and that anyone who contradicts him is limiting free speech.

The people who work for him should look for a new employer that is more intelligent. They should also join the boycott. No one should have to put up with being told that free speech is only for CEOs. There are other companies with more benevolent leaders.

Who is going to have this dialogue and what exactly would the "education" be about? I cannot just call up the CEO of Goya on his phone and chat. Boycotts are about the only voice customers have.

Processed foods are full of salt, sugar and fat .... but seeing what was wiped from the shelves during the pandemic frenzy (besides toilet paper) I totally get why Americans have so many health problems. Lots of canned/processed foods consumed in this country.

Meanwhile in the fresh food department there were/are no shortages, at least at my grocer.

Like others, I don’t get the big deal. Public political statements are made by companies for effect. Why then complain about there being an effect?


It won’t influence my shopping any. Trying to think, in my lifetime I can recall having bought a couple cans of garbanzo beans, before a taste test revealed that I strongly preferred soaking dried. I also remember buying their sofrito once.

(ETA - oops I forgot about chipotle. I buy a can of that every couple years.)

If I have to buy canned veggies for some reason, like a pandemic where I won't be getting out, I buy Del Monte. I really don't know or care about their politics. I mix my own spices. I basically eat TexMex and BBQ. I don't like Mexican rice. Spanish rice is much better.

I'd also like to know what Trump promised this CEO - I'm guessing more tax cuts that will help line his CEO pockets and nada for the workers.

I'm glad to see that his Trump praise didn't magically erase most people's memory of how Trump feels about Mexican heritage citizens, except on the day that they vote.

studio Ohio is an agricultural state, besides soy and corn lots of vegetables are grown here, we also have greenhouses. My local farmers market carries fresh spinach, lettuce etal in the winter grown in a local greenhouse.

I cannot stand a vegetable that comes out of a can ... I was raised on processed food even though growing up we were surrounded by family-owned farms.

Vegetables in a can? Meat in a can? NO thank you.

All of my children were raised on fresh vegetables ... quickest thing to prepare in the kitchen. Yes beans take longer, but you can soak them overnight and nowadays they have Instapots.

Leave it to some Americans to whine about canned beans ... but then they whine cause someone wants them to wear a mask.

From Charles Blow:

Once more: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS CANCEL CULTURE. There is free speech. You can say and do as you pls, and others can choose never to deal this you, your company or your products EVER again. The rich and powerful are just upset that the masses can now organize their dissent.

Furthermore, even if you’re a public figure, you’re still a person. You are still going to make mistakes like other ppl. You just have to take your knocks for it. Lord knows I have. But, you can’t complain. YOU DID IT. There are consequences for your actions. Learn and move on.

I haven't heard anyone whine about wearing a mask. A few democrats were complaining about their bad breath awhile back, but that's all I've heard. I don't eat canned beans. I soak them for 24 hours and then boil for 30 mins 3 times, removing the foam, rinse, and use fresh water each time, then cook them. Fartless beans. :^)

I wouldn't know from experience, but also have heard that early on there were plenty of fresh vegetables in stores but not prepared foods.

From what I know about younger/working people--many are accustomed to providing fast food for their families or self bake pizzas, things like that.

They don't or won't have the time to chop and cook vegetables or even know how to cook them in many instances because they grew up with working parents or drugged out, neglected parents.

Of course we have a lot of people that were brought up with a parent at home that had a healthy, nutritional, attractive variety of fresh foods for dinner. Doubt it was mom picking up kids from daycare at 5:45 and getting home at 6:15, having to do laundry and worry about paying the bills. Arugula, toasted pine nuts and shaved parmesan with quality olive oil and fresh lemon juice probably wasn't on her shopping list when she braved going into the grocery store.


Additionally, those fresh vegetables were and are EXPENSIVE compared to canned beans and pasta, rice, etc. We didn't know what was going to happen with Covid in the beginning considering the dire warnings, if the Angel of Death was going to be at each house, if it would be safe to even leave our homes at some point, and if a job or income would be coming in. People needed to save.

It's one thing to cricitize people for not buying fresh vegetables or doing the right thing by their families, but we must be mindful that these were and are unusual times. People that stock up canned and packaged foods are smart.

Just like the mob of thugs physically breaking down gates into gated, private neighborhoods, trespassing onto the property of a private home, threatening to kill the residents and their pet and take over their home, and when the people came out to protect themselves, THEY are the ones in trouble with the law, which REFUSED to come out and protect THEM, and now a search warrant has been executed and their rightfully owned guns have now been confiscated and THEY are the ones in trouble.

So, yea, buy that arugula and fresh vegetables but give people a pass for doing what they need to do for their families, because it's not just COVID 19 now, it's outright lawlessness and terrorism.

The statues are only the beginning--history tells us that.

Our rights are being erased as we speak, just like the couple in St. Louis, and a special group are allowed to rob, kill, burn, steal, intimidate, threaten, destroy private property, trespass with no consequences.

Enjoy those fresh vegetables, because whether from a store, our own gardens, or farmers' markets, they're going to be the least of our concerns quite soon.

mrskjun, curiously, last week I ordered canned black beans and only got two cans, thd shopper called and said that was what they were rationing. I haven't been in a store since early March so didn't realize that was still going on. So, I ordered bags of dried black beans from Goya last week. How fortuitious. I will be ordering more products and using or donating to the food shelter.

"I don’t think boycotting will accomplish as much as dialogue and education would"

I have to say I'm not sure what dialogue and education would look like in this case. Would it be dialogue that one must support the candidate of someone else's choosing and has no right to support the candidate of their own choosing? Then, would the education piece be that they will be harmed in some fashion if they make a different choice than told to in the dialogue piece?

I went to the grocery yesterday intending on stocking up on canned veggies. When I looked at the 15 ft space that they were in rather than half of a long aisle I decided to leave it for others. Even the greenhouses that supply two of the sources that I purchase from are having shortages of certain things. It is nice to talk about having fresh food but the reality is that someone has to pick it. The other reality is that the pickers and processors in some areas are becoming ill from the virus. Most of the canned stuff currently on the market is from food that was either processed last year and been in warehouses or were frozen to be processed later. Normally at this time of the year the processors are clearing out their warehouses to make room for this years produce. At least here it appears that there is little or no need because in a normal year there would be sales on canned goods. Salt or no salt, processed hate or none people should have some cans of foodstuffs on hand and this year it is more important than ever.

Given the number of reports of lack of antibodies along with the number of reported reinfections with those reinfections having worse symptoms things may be much worse next year.

I don't know maifleur, I shop at a family-owned grocer, maybe it is because I do live in an agricultural state but produce has been plentiful here.

And not all the produce comes from my state, I know we do not grow citrus :)

I do buy and freeze a lot of produce this time of the year for the cold months ahead.

I was a working mom and I cooked. My children were latchkey kids and every single one of them knows how to chop vegggies and cook.

Maybe some don't want to be bothered cooking and that is fine, but a can of mushy salty veggies is not my idea of good eats. LOL

As far as the doom and gloom scenario of stockpiling for end times, yeah I don't think so.

Everything is gonna be allright as long as we remember that "united we stand".

Peace out ...

I agree completely...only I suspect our pronouns would reference different people.

To see the trump campaign manipulate people into attending trump rallies without distancing and masking just for his own self-aggrandizement is horrible and people are dying as a result of being used in that way. To see them turn masking into a political statement when a deadly virus doesn't care a whit about one's politics, only about how easy a host you are, is horrifying...especially as death rates are starting to rise now with the run up in infection rates given the lags involved.

All the major groceries in this area are owned by one of three families. They may have regional labels on their names, Price Chopper, HyVee but they are still family owned. National brands that are left like Aldi and Sprouts are small stores. National brands left in the 1980s after labor disputes. Since the remaining stores are "family" connected that may have played a part in their leaving. Something to look at when your visit a groceries produce area is how the stuff is displayed. In the past it would have had at least two layers of produce and bigger displays. Today one layer of produce and smaller flatter displays that make it appear to the eye that there is more on the display. This area is a regional hub for food because we have caves which make easier and cheaper storage.

I don't think the few white Trumpers who buy a can of Goya beans can make up for the loss of thousands of Latinos who use their food several times a week.

You're not going to convince me that heartland America is suddenly going to cook Latino food and save the company. I had a friend visit the west coast from Tennessee, and of all the great food choices, she wanted to go out for dinner at Cracker Barrel.

As I said before Toby. I would imagine the CEO is quite wealthy and the boycott won't hurt him a bit. It can only hurt the four thousand or more employees who depend on a paycheck to pay their bills. So what if people get laid off because sales fall. It's the principal of the thing. We hate Trump more than we care about our fellow citizens. So why doesn't someone speak up and tell us how tolerant the left is again.

Adriana Waterston, senior vice president of Horowitz Research, which specializes in Hispanic consumers, said Goya routinely emerges among the most trusted brands in the studies she conducts for clients. She said that speaks to the potential for a deep sense of betrayal among Goya customers, though the brand's popularity will also make any boycott effort difficult.


This Goya thing is going to go down as one of the biggest marketing faux pas of the year," Waterston said. “This kind of stance is a slap in the face to the community.”

The buying power of the rapidly growing U.S. Latino community is expected to reach $1.9 trillion in 2023, according to a 2019 report on Hispanic consumer trends by the data analytics company Nielsen. While that outlook is likely to be affected by the current recession, Hispanic spending will also be a key engine of economic recovery that many brands will want to tap into, said Stacie de Armas, vice president of strategic initiatives and consumer engagement at Nielsen.

It is the Hispanic population that will make the difference to GOYA.

No lurker, not an over-active imagination:

  • trump did not wear a mask
  • trump before hand suggested that wearing one might be more harmful:

The president also referred to the false claim that masks can harm wearers, while saying that people should wear them only if they wanted to. “You know, there was a time when people thought it was worse wearing a mask,” he said. “I let people make up their own decision.”

  • trump campaign workers were videoed removing stickers on chairs marked for distancing at the event
  • the event only required masks upon entering the building, but once inside, people were allowed to remove them...and they did

I find the Republicans I know, don't cause a big scene, if a company or store says or does something that we don't like. We just quietly have it in our head and if there is another option than to shop there, we do it, or maybe we don't. No big deal. We don't call it out on insta or FB or media. That is why we are the party of class. We don't tell anyone not to support a certain product. That is your own personal decision. It's really not that hard. But, I will say, every time someone "cancels" on a product and the owner/worker gets 'canceled', it just makes it better for the President. The American people are sick of all the 'cancel culture'-do you really not get that??? It is not working in Dems favor.

So with all those choices and absolutely no preference - except for Low Sodium which they ALL do - why would I go out of my way to buy Goya? There are just too many choices.

Which in my store means it's easy to miss it if you aren't looking for it.

Ducey tried to hurt Nike for making a political statement. If Nike had decided not to open a new plant in AZ and not provide jobs for 500 workers, it would've hurt that community. How is it any different than non-Trump supporters boycotting Goya for their political stance?

The irony of it is that the founder of Nike is a huge Republican donor!

Regarding those books in the dumpster:

Sunrise Park Middle School Principal Christina Pierre sent a message to parents Friday morning, explaining their media specialist had put outdated library books in the recycle bin after "weeding through the collection."

"The weeding procedure is important to help us find a new home for books 10 years and older to ensure that materials are keeping up-to-date with the needs of ever-changing curriculum, school goals and student needs," wrote Pierre.

Pierre went on to say staff followed book disposal protocol by trying to donate as many as possible and distribute to Little Free Libraries in the area, however, some organizations could not accept the books due to outdated content or aren't accepting donations amid the pandemic.

I couldn't be bothered studying the list but most seem to have been removed by a governing body. I swill never support the toppling, destroying, or defacing of monuments but I think the absolute right thing to do is have local authorities take action that reflects the will, and or, make up of their community.

Most of the theses "monuments" were placed during thew Jim Crow or civil rights movement era...now why do you suppose that was?

I have no opinion on what the right thing is for communities to do but I would never support vandals.

****Update***I was mistaken, the post I thought was missing is under the Ivanka, look for something new thread.

Never has there been such deplorable straight out marketing coming from the white house in support of a privately owned company.

Trumps' seem to think they are kind of Marketing gurus. I do think they understand endorsing products is not legal for them to do but they thumb their noses at such laws. They don't care and know they will not get in trouble. They don't give a can of beans that it's not allowed, they flaunt this type of behavior, and say "What are you going to do about it", as Trumplicans cheer these acts and even support.

Trymps act as if they are still on their lame reality show. But this time it's on our dime, in our house. Just why is trump doing this. For one on one adoration, for support from Hispanics? But there could be something more. How much money has Goyas owner contributed to Trump campaign?

So devaluing the office of the president by hawking beans from the Oval Office doesn't bother you. That says a lot. Granted in the list of deplorable things Trump has done it's at the bottom but still....

What's next? Hawking microfiber sheet sets from the Lincoln bedroom with the Mypillow guy and Ivanka sprawled on them speaking in her oh so whispery voice.

Trumps' step in it everyday.

If Obama was hawking beans from the Oval Office and Michelle was modeling with a can of beans you all would be so angry you would be having group strokes.


... little tidbit. Not 100% if this is true, I'll check. It's the president who would discipline politicians and staff if the law about promoting private or public enterprise was broken. So... my guess he wouldn't do that. Trump has managed to find loopholes every where for everything. We got some cleaning up to do.
