United Fertilizers Company Limited (UFCL) is African trading arm of two manufacturers of high quality fertilizers Uralkali and Uralchem. Both suppliers are located in Russia and distribute their products globally. Uralchem, Uralkali and UFCL all share the same business philosophy, which is to provide customers and crop growers with the best plant nutrients and share comprehensive knowledge about plant nutrition. Our fertilizers undergo strict quality control at all stages of production, storage and delivery. We use advanced technological, packaging and logistics solutions across our supply chain. Our products have been available in Africa already for decades, but now UFCL offers a unique opportunity to source fertilizers of Russian origin directly from the producers.
