Goya España celebrates its 50th anniversary in an unforgettable night at La Maestranza

  • The Sevillian bullring welcomed more than 650 guests, from the regional and local administration, business organizations, workers, customers and suppliers.
  • The company celebrates its 50th anniversary as one of the leading exporters of Spanish olive oils and olives to the five continents.

On the night of June 25, the Real Maestranza de Caballería bullring hosted the 50th Anniversary Gala of the foundation of the Goya España factory in Alcalá de Guadaíra (Seville).

After the initial reception, the 650 guests invited to the gala – presented by journalists Toñi Moreno and Manu Sánchez- were treated to some very emotional moments. The first of these was the projection of a video tribute in which the workers who have formed part of the “Goya España family” throughout these five decades told its founder, Antonio Unanue, about the evolution of the factory since its installation in Alcalá de Guadaíra in 1974.

This was followed by the General Manager of Goya España, Antonio Carrasco, who, after warmly welcoming the guests, reviewed the history of the company, highlighting its main values.

After his speech, the Vice-counselor of Agriculture, Fisheries, Water and Rural Development of Andalusia, Consolación Vera, highlighted the value of Goya España in the business fabric of the province as one of the main exporters of olive oils and table olives.

The final touch to the speeches was provided by the vice-president of Goya Foods, Joseph Pérez, and the CEO of the company, Robert Unanue, CEO of the company, son of the founder, and third generation Unanue, who, after an emotional memory of his father, insisted on the family character of the company and its constant attention to the community whenever it needs it.

With a strong Andalusian accent, Goya España’s 50th Anniversary Gala paid tribute to the company’s roots, with flamenco and Andalusian horses as protagonists, and a masterful performance by the Argentina singer, bringing Spain and the Caribbean, Goya Spain and Goya Foods together with her voice. Because If it’s Goya…, It has to be good!
