Mosaic is one of the world's leading producers of concentrated phosphate and potash crop nutrients.

The company operates mining and processing operations that produce high quality fertilizer and animal feed ingredients. Mosaic offers all three crop nutrients (phosphate, potash, and nitrogen), customized services that increase both crop and economic yields, plus a rich legacy of experience and innovation.

Operation and distribution includes:

- Operates key distribution facilities in 11 countries which serve customers in 33 countries

- Operates port terminals, warehouses and blending and bagging facilities in nine countries

- Operates 16 phosphate rock mines and plants, five potash production facilities and one nitrogen production facility

In 2007, Mosaic reported revenues of $5.7 billion and net income of $419.7 million.


Mosaic was formed in 2004 by combining IMC Global and Cargill Crop Nutrition. Both companies have been recognized around the world as leaders in the fertilizer industry for decades.

IMC Global dates back almost 100 years to 1909 when entrepreneur Thomas Meadows started in the phosphate mining business. In 1940 the company mined 50,000 tons of potash from its Carlsbad, New Mexico plant; last year, IMC Global mined approximately 1.7 million tons from the same location, helping the company earn $2.2 billion in revenues in 2003.

It was a grain backhaul opportunity that launched Cargill Crop Nutrition in the 1960s. Product was needed to fill empty barges to make a profitable round-trip, so Cargill, already a leading agribusiness company, entered the fertilizer industry. From there the division grew to become one of the world's top producers of phosphate and nitrogen fertilizer.
