As a leading global fertilizer company, we are driven by the world’s increasing need for food.
As the United Nations warns of an impending global food emergency that threatens to send millions more into conditions of hunger and starvation, EuroChem Group AG remains committed to fulfilling the world’s requirement for food, and ensuring that farmers around the world have continued access to high-quality crop nutrients.
Part of that commitment compels us to ensure that we are compliant with all relevant laws in all regions at all times. Our stringent internal and external compliance protocols ensure that we can continue to operate freely, and thereby continue to meet the high expectations of our various stakeholders.
“Thousands of farmers all over the world depend on us to supply them in a timely manner with the crop nutrients they need to get the most out of their land, so that they can feed their communities. We are glad that in this climate our detailed compliance procedures ensure we are able to maintain frictionless operations with all of our counterparties as we seek to help growers maximize their harvests.”Samir Brikho, EuroChem Executive Chairman
EuroChem Group AG is headed by Executive Chairman Samir Brikho, in conjunction with the Board of Directors.
