Yara delivers solutions for sustainable agriculture and the environment. Our fertilizers and crop nutrition programs help produce the food required for the growing world population. Our industrial products and solutions reduce emissions, improve air quality and support safe and efficient operations. Founded in Norway in 1905, Yara has a worldwide presence with sales to 150 countries. Safety is always our top priority.
We are the world’s leading chemical company that converts energy, natural minerals and nitrogen from the air into essential products for farmers and industrial customers. The main application is fertilizers, while industrial uses and environmental solutions are also important growth segments.
Our global activities range from phosphate mining and ammonia production, through commodity trade and energy arbitrage, to building local market knowledge and developing customer relationships. The backbone of the company’s operations was large-scale ammonia and fertilizer production in Europe, but in recent years new capacity has been added in regions with low-cost gas supplies.
We ensure reliable supplies of mineral fertilizer and related industrial products to customers worldwide. We benefit from our scale advantages, as the world’s largest producer of ammonia, nitrate and complex fertilizer, and with about 20% of global ammonia trade.
Our local sales and marketing units provide customer services and agronomical support, working with farmers worldwide to increase yields and improve crop quality and nutritional value.
We utilize our strong production platform and global supply system to create local benefits, providing customers with the combination of quality products and expert knowledge that best matches their needs.
