OUR STORY

We are proud to be a family owned and operated business.

The Transmar family began with the formation of the Transmar Commodity Group in 1980 by the experienced cocoa trader Peter G. Johnson. Driven by a vision of creating consolidated solutions for the industry, our portfolio of services has expanded to include every facet of the cocoa product supply chain from bean sourcing, logistics, processing, and risk mitigation to semi-finished products.

Transmar Group is now one of the oldest privately-owned cocoa trade houses in the United States and is led by two generations of the Johnson family.
