OCP Groups, a state owned company through its subsidiary, OCP Africa has donated 5,000 tonnes of fertilizer to small scale farmers in Mauritania. OCP group is a global leader in plant nutrition and the largest producer of phosphate-based fertilizers.

 

The group aims to support African farmers and contribute to ensuring food security in Africa. It seeks to contribute to strengthening the cooperation and partnership between Morocco and its Southern neighbor. It also seeks to contribute to a sustainable transition of agricultural systems on the continent according to Director General of OCP Africa Anouar Jamali.

 

The donation took place on Friday the 16th of December and the program will benefit 50,000 farmers. The program is also part of OCP’s investments over the past 10 years in Africa-focused research and development in collaboration with agronomic institutes and research universities across the country.

 

The first phase of the OCP fertilizer program was launched under the instructions of King Mohammed VI. 

 

The OCP has made several similar donations, benefiting thousands of farmers across the continent. The most recent happened in October; they donated 25,000 tonnes of fertilizer to small scale farmers in Senegal.
