What We Do

IFA is the only global fertilizer association

The International Fertilizer Association (IFA) was founded in 1927 and is the only global fertilizer association, with 450+ members in some 80 countries and a mission to promote the efficient and responsible production, distribution and use of plant nutrients. This mission plays a critical role in helping to feed the world sustainably. IFA represents providers of plant nutrition solutions. Members include fertilizer producers, traders and distributors, as well as their associations, service providers to the industry, research organizations, agtech start-ups and non-governmental organizations.

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.
