AMMAN — Jordan exports of potash to Brazil has reached 250,000 tonnes, according to the CEO of the Arab Potash Company, Maen Nsour. "Potash is no longer just a commodity, but a weapon, which can be exchanged for Jordan's food needs,” he told Al-Mamlaka TV.اضافة اعلان

Nsour added that the company had invested about $500 million in infrastructure projects in order to enter the Brazilian market strongly. He added that Brazil now imports 85 percent of its fertilizer needs from Jordan due to the repercussions of the war in Ukraine on the Brazilian agricultural sector.
He indicated that the company is seeking to raise potash production from 2.5 million tonnes to 4 million tonnes, in order to compete with competitors and open new export lines.

He pointed out that Brazil chose Jordan as the first destination in its tripartite Arab tour due to strong trade relations and the quality of Jordanian potash. Jordan’s APC ranks seventh globally in relation to other potash competitors. APC is also the third company in the world that manufactures potassium nitrate, and the second in the world that manufactures bromine.
