The International Fertilizer Association (IFA) was founded in 1927 and is the only global fertilizer association with a membership of 480 companies in 68 countries. 45% of IFA's membership is based in developing economies. IFA Members represent 75-80% of global fertilizer production.
IFA's Members include fertilizer producers, traders and distributors, as well as their associations, service providers to the industry, research organizations, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
IFA's vision: Productive and sustainable agricultural systems contribute to a world free of hunger and malnutrition.
IFA's mission : IFA promotes the efficient and responsible production, distribution and use of plant nutrients.
IFA's approach: IFA provides a framework for exchange and collaboration among its members on areas of common interest, and a structure for agreeing on common positions.
“For us, the benefit of IFA is when Members align on key messages, align on common goals, and align on what is important for us to address as an industry, for example sustainable agriculture. We as an industry achieve far more than any one company could individually, we gain credibility and we provide leverage around many of the issues that our industry faces”
