The two plants will have a capacity of 1 million tons a year, Soufiyane El Kassi told the British news agency. A second fertilizer plant in Ethiopia is also expected to start operating by 2023 or 2024.

In addition to these three plants, OCP will be building blending plants in Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana, Rwanda. These facilities will be producing customized fertilizers that would go hand in hand with the requirements of different soils, El Kassi said.
