    “President Trump on Wednesday shared a photo on Instagram with several Goya Foods products as the White House doubled down on its public support of the company even as a similar tweet from Ivanka Trump raised concerns about the violation of ethics rules for public officials.” https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/507506-trump-shares-photo-with-goya-foods-products-after-ivanka-faces

    “Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) on Friday filed a complaint against White House adviser Ivanka Trump for a photo pushing products from Goya Foods, accusing the president’s eldest daughter of violating ethics laws for federal employees. https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/507825-watchdog-group-files-ethics-complaint-against-ivanka-trump-over-goya
    CREW alleges that Trump violated the Standards of Conduct, a policy that bars White House employees from using or permitting the use of their government positions or titles to endorse any product, service or enterprise.” https://s3.amazonaws.com/storage.citizensforethics.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/17155221/2020-7-17-OGE-Ivanka-Trump-Goya.pdf

    “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.” https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/26/business/goya-ceo-robert-unanue-silenced/index.html
    “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.”

    NY Post: “…“Bob does not speak for Goya Foods when he speaks on TV,” Goya board member and third-generation owner Andy Unanue told The Post last week leading up to the vote. “The family has diverse views on politics, but politics is not part of our business. Our political point of views are irrelevant.” https://nypost.com/2021/01/25/goya-foods-votes-to-silence-pro-trump-ceo-robert-unanue/
