About us

We are the EU manufacturers and blenders of phosphate and NPK fertilizers.

Our joint purpose in this alliance is to give a uniform voice to the European phosphate and NPK fertilizers industry in Brussels in all regulatory and legislative matters and interact with EU and EU Member State regulatory and legislative bodies.




Phosphate and NPK fertilizers

supply soils with phosphorus and other nutrients, like nitrogen and potassium, that are necessary for proper growth and development of plants.

The EU phosphate fertilizer industry

is therefore a key and indispensable component of the European agricultural industry and plays a central role in ensuring European Union’s food security.

We are a sustainable industry.

As our main job is to provide EU’s farmers with the nutrition that they will provide to the crops they grow, we are inseparably connected with our the environment, quality of our soils, air and waters and our food.


In addition to being a constituent part of the EU agricultural industry

The phosphate and NPK industry stands on its own a major provider of jobs, revenue, investment and tax revenues in many member states. The largest producers of phosphate and NPK fertilizers are – in alphabetical order – France, Poland, Romania, and Spain.






Our members use different market strategies.

Yet from fully integrated EU producers, who start from imports of phosphate rock to produce phosphoric acid, then MAP/DAP and finally NPKs, to EU producers of fertilizers through the nitrophosphate route, to EU blenders, who only buy finished DAP to produce NPKs, we all share a common interests in ensuring a competitive, vibrant, and healthy phosphate fertilizer market that is enriching for the farmers and consumers and fair for EU producers.
