One of OCP AFRICA's primary goals is to provide assistance to smallholder farmers in making the transition from subsistence to commercial farming, including through the development of infrastructure across the African continent.
OCP AFRICA heavily invests in production and logistics, and in many countries, this includes fertilizer blending and storage facilities. We have furthered this growth in African countries in several meaningful ways, including through the creation of blending facilities, fertilizer storage initiatives and the development of fertilizer supply partnerships. These projects are important because they allow us to reduce costs and be more agile and responsive to local needs
Our infrastructure projects have impacted markets across Africa including in Rwanda, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, Tanzania, Senegal, Guinea, Angola, Cameroon and Mozambique.
For example, as part of the Presidential Fertilizer Initiative Programme in Nigeria, we are working to upgrade the country’s blending facilities through a national “revamping blenders” program, and we have signed a joint venture agreement to develop an NPK fertilizer plant and distribution network. We are also exploring fertilizer supply partnerships in Guinea and Angola.
