Goya board silences its CEO after he tells Fox News the election was rigged


New York (CNN Business) Goya’s board of directors had enough of CEO Robert Unanue’s public comments in support of former President Donald Trump and his unfounded claims of voter fraud. On Friday, it voted to muzzle him.

The board of the privately held Latino food company voted to censure Unanue, following his most recent controversial remarks that questioned the legitimacy of the November election, according to a person familiar with the board’s actions, who spoke to CNN on the condition that their name not be used.

Unanue will no longer be allowed to speak to the media without the board’s permission, the source said. The decision was first reported by the New York Post Monday evening.

The source said this is a “full stop” on Unanue speaking to the press, not only about politics, but also about the company itself.

A majority of Goya shareholders favor removing Unanue altogether but have been prevented from doing so by the dynamics of the family-controlled company, according to the source.

“The company has never been political or politicized,” said the source. “He’s gone from bad CEO to CEO that has imperiled the future of the company and endangered the lives of some of the shareholders,” the source said in reference to some Unanue family members having allegedly received threats because of the CEO’s comments.
