Fertiglobe operates across a diverse regional footprint with four world-class production facilities in three countries, comprised of Fertil in the UAE, EFC and EBIC in Egypt, and Sorfert in Algeria. These facilities have an annual production capacity of 6.6 million tons of sellable urea and merchant ammonia, making us the largest nitrogen producer in the MENA region and the largest seaborne exporter of nitrogen fertilizers globally.
Our geographically advantageous production facilities benefit from direct access to six key ports and distribution hubs on the Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, and the Arabian Gulf. This strategic positioning allows us to easily access the major end-markets and high-demand regions for our products (Europe, South Asia, Australia, East Africa and Latin America).
