Fauji Fertilizer Company Limited at a Glance

Fauji Fertilizer Company Limited (FFC) was incorporated in 1978 as a joint venture between Fauji Foundation, a charitable trust in Pakistan and Haldor Topsoe A/S of Denmark to set up a urea production facility with capacity of 570 thousand tonnes per annum. Over the years, FFC has grown through reinvestment in fertilizer sector and at present, it is the largest urea manufacturer of the Country with an annual production capacity of over 2 million tonnes through its three plants. The Company has contributed more than US$ 13 billion to the National Exchequer through import substitution of over 56 million tonnes of urea since its inception. Over the last four decades, FFC has instilled a culture of integrity, good governance, transparency and adherence to highest ethical standards, which are evidenced through our unmarred reputation in Pakistan as well as internationally, and is supported by various accolades in financial reporting, philanthropy, good governance and other operational areas. The Company is also a pioneer member of IFA’s Protect & Sustain initiative and has secured the highest average score in Pakistan during 2017. Company has secured top position in the ICAP / ICMAP’s best presented reports award for 11 years and is maintaining first position for the seventh consecutive year on the PSX Top 25 Companies list. This is a testament to the skill, ingenuity and exemplary competence of the management in reflecting high standards of transparency, accountability and good governance.

With a Country centric approach to further relieve import pressures, the Company has setup Pakistan’s first and only DAP and granular urea facility; Fauji Fertilizer Bin Qasim Limited (FFBL), with a shareholding of 49.88%. The products of both companies are marketed through FFC’s well-diversified field force and Pakistan’s largest dealers’ & warehousing network which ensures timely supply to the farming community, besides imparting valuable knowledge on latest farming techniques. Our well-recognized ‘Sona’ brand meaning gold thus signifying the value of our product to the farming community of the Country, FFC combined with FFBL, commanded a market share of 52% in urea and 56% in DAP in 2017 (source: NFDC).

FFC has always been a socially responsible corporate entity with a focused approach on providing finest quality products and services to end users. The Company started its CSR activities in 1982 by introducing Agri-Services department. For that purpose FFC established five State of the Art Farm Advisory Centers where highly qualified Technical Service Officers are striving for transferring latest Agricultural Technology and recommending balanced use of fertilizers. Micro-Nutrient analysis (Zinc, Boron & Iron) and Soil/Water testing facilities are also given to farmers free of cost.
