Goya CEO Robert Unanue deemed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “employee of the month” because since Ocasio-Cortez called for a boycott on the company, it’s sales increased by 1000%, according to Fox Business.
“When she boycotted us, our sales actually increased by 1,000%. So we gave her an honorary, we never were able to hand it to her, but she got employee of the month for bringing attention to Goya and our adobo.”
“Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling ‘how to make your own adobo,'” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter.

Allegedly The boycott was called because Unanue said he was “blessed” to have “a leader like President Trump who is a builder.”
“We’re controlled by social media. Anything that doesn’t go along with their agenda and narrative is not permissible. We’ve lost our courage. We are the greatest country on earth but we’ve lost the freedom and we have to get back to work.”
“They turned their weapons, in a political year, on the masses. This is discrimination against the working class. We’re not teaching our children. We’re not working.”
From Fox Busines:
He noted that the boycott allowed Goya to reach “so many new people” while maintaining its base.

Unanue told Berry that it was interesting to see AOC as one of the first people to boycott Goya and “go against her own people,” adding that she is ‘naive’ when it comes to her support of policies like the Green New Deal.
His latest comments come as Goya has doubled its production with an $80 million facility in Texas to meet increasing demand.
Despite the success, Unanue told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo in an interview last week that he is concerned for the nation.
He lamented that politicians have blamed the coronavirus on Trump and “weaponized” it against the American worker. He also argued that politicians should be fired instead of the millions in the restaurant industry who are now unemployed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
