Spanning a history of 115 years and three generations, the Mayrsohn family has been a leading importer and exporter in perishable foods business.
The great story started in 1899. When young Mayr Mayrsohn shipped in the first load of fresh produce from Cuba to New York, he also started a prodigious legacy.
In 1947, Bernard Mayrsohn, after serving in the U.S. Army during the WWII and attending Cornell University, followed his father's footsteps into produce trading. Bernard started active sales to Europe, which further developed Mayrsohn's business. By 1959 Bernard was part owner and became president of the public company Prevor-Mayrsohn International with offices in New York Hunts Point Market and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
In 1982, Mark Mayrsohn who is also a Cornell graduate joined his father and together they created Mayrsohn International Trading Co., Inc. While Bernard maintained active imports and exports with Europe, Mark greatly expanded the business into the Caribbean islands, Central and South America, under Prevor-Mayrsohn International, which opened up a new office in San Juan, Puerto Rico in addition to the office in New York.
Fast-forward to 2014, Mayrsohn is now one of the most recognized names in the Global Import/Export produce business. Headquartered in Miami, Florida, Mayrsohn has additional offices in New York, California and Santiago, Chile to ensure the delivery of the fresh produce for all our customers.
Our Miami facility includes twelve different coolers with independent temperature controls, office on premises for in-and-out close inspection, dedicated global sales teams and longstanding relationships with suppliers and customers.
