OCP North America
The OCP Group (“OCP”) is a major global plant nutrition company headquartered in Morocco, with exclusive rights to develop Morocco’s world-leading reserves of phosphate ore. The company is integrated across the entire phosphate value chain, extracting, marketing and selling phosphate and its derivatives, phosphoric acid and fertilizers to customers on five continents. In Morocco, OCP is the largest corporate employer, with close to 21,000 employees.
OCP launched its North American subsidiary, OCP Research LLC, in 2016. OCP Research was originally formed as an internal consulting firm to provide the OCP Group with a variety of services related to market analysis, policy research, partnership & relationship development, and project management. In 2019, OCP Research is expanding its role to include the marketing and distribution of OCP products within North America. Consistent with this expanded role, OCP Research LLC has recently been renamed OCP North America Inc. OCP North America represents the OCP Group in TFI meetings and committees.
The 4Rs Nutrient Stewardship framework promotes Best Management Practices that support healthy soils, in turn providing economic, social and environmental benefits for farmers and local communities. Its flexibility supports adoption of the most appropriate BMPs for the farm, which vary significantly by geography, soil properties, crop type, management history and other factors. At the same time, its clear principles of the right source, rate, time and place are an important guide for farmers and crop advisors making nutrient management decisions.
OCP is a leader in the sustainable production of phosphate fertilizers, and that commitment to environmental and social responsibility extends to the use of the products we sell. OCP’s Circular Economy team in Morocco has set ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy efficiency, optimize water consumption, limit waste by-products, and ensure eco-friendly mine rehabilitation. The commitment to environmental preservation encompasses our efforts in North America. 4R Nutrient Stewardship helps to ensure that the phosphate we supply is used effectively and efficiently.
OCP has one-of-a-kind phosphate fertilizer production expertise and continually strives to innovate in order to contribute to sustainably “feeding the soil to feed the planet.” As a 4R partner, OCP will contribute to the industry effort to advance research and technical knowledge on the 4Rs, collaborate with farmers and trusted advisors to optimize nutrient management, and support the 4R Advocates that share with the public the progress we can make with the 4R framework.
