Foskor (Pty) Ltd

Foskor is a producer and distributor of phosphate rock, phosphate-based fertilisers, sulphuric acid, phosphoric acid and magnetite locally and internationally.

We are based in South Africa. and employ a total of 1 654 people spread across the Phalaborwa Mining Division, the Richards Bay Acid Division and the head office in Midrand.

We mine phosphate rock in Phalaborwa and transfer it by rail to our Richards Bay facility, where we use it to produce phosphoric acid and granular fertilisers – MAP (monoammonium phosphates). We also produce sulphuric acid, which is used in the production of phosphoric acid, and we sell excess sulphuric acid that becomes available. Foskor also has magnetite, a by-product of phosphate rock beneficiation which was mined in the past and stored in a stockpile. Currently, there is no magnetite mined in the process.

We are the leading domestic producer and supplier of phosphate-based products (phosphate rock, phosphoric acid and mono ammonium phosphate. Beyond serving the local market and SADC regional markets (DRC, eSwatini, Zimbabwe, Zambia etc) we supply phosphoric acid and mono ammonium phosphate to international markets, particularly India, the world’s largest market of phosphate products. We also supply phosphoric acid to other international markets (Brazil, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Belgium and France). While the bulk of our phosphate rock concentrate is used in our phosphoric acid manufacturing plant, we also export
available products to international markets (Belgium, Netherlands, Norway, Lithuania, New Zealand and Japan).

Foskor is the leading South African supplier of granular
fertilisers, the core ingredient in nitrogen, phosphate and
potassium fertiliser products known as NPKs.
