At a​ Glance

  • Foskor was founded by the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) in 1951 to produce phosphates for South Africa​’s agricultural sector, and is the only vertically integrated producer of phosphate ore, phosphoric acid and granular fertiliser in South Africa.

  • The Group’s core activities are the mining of phosphate rock and the production of phosphoric acid and phosphate-based fertilisers. Foskor mines and beneficiates phosphate rock at Phalaborwa in South Africa’s Limpopo Province, from there it is carried by rail to the production facility in Richards Bay in KwaZulu-Natal.

  • Foskor is the leading South African supplier of granular fertilisers, the core ingredient in nitrogen, phosphate and potassium fertiliser products known as NPKs. It is also a commercial producer of phosphoric and sulphuric acids and magnetite (a by-product of the phosphate beneficiation process), which are sold both locally and abroad.
