Within this framework, OCP Group has signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoU’s) with India’s largest public and private sector fertilizer producers, paving the way for OCP to supply India with up to 1.7 million metric tons (MT) of phosphate fertilizers for the agricultural season over the next twelve months.
