What we do


IFA is the only global fertilizer association and has a membership of some 400 entities, encompassing companies across the fertilizer value chain from producers through traders and distributors and service providers to advisors, research organizations and NGOs.

Our vision Productive and sustainable agriculture systems contribute to a world free of hunger and malnutrition. Our mission IFA promotes the efficient and responsible production, distribution and use of plant nutrients. Our approach IFA provides a framework for exchanges and collaboration among its members and a structure for agreeing common positions and joint actions.

Our members decide together on areas of common interest, joint actions and positions with regard to complex issues facing the industry today. IFA events facilitate the sharing of information and best practices. Joining IFA's thematic Committees, Working Groups or Task Forces expands members' knowledge and contacts and allows them to shape the work program and common positions. The IFA Secretariat, based in Paris and working globally, works with and for members to carry out the Association's strategic plan.
