Yara International has revealed plans to build a new global production plant for specialty crop nutrition products and biostimulants in Yorkshire.
The plant will be one of the largest in the world for these products, which are crucial for achieving food security and combating climate change.
It will be built close to the company’s existing site in Yorkshire, will allow Yara to double the capacity of its YaraVita products when the facility is expected to be operational by the end of 2025 and further expand production capacity if needed. Virtually all the output from the plant will be exported to markets around the world.
“Our specialty crop nutrition products help farmers increase yields and quality without increasing land use. That not only benefits farmers but is also good for the planet,” says Mónica Andrés Enríquez, executive vice president for Europe at Yara International.
“It’s no wonder that this market is growing exponentially. Amid today’s food security and climate change challenges, it’s more important than ever to feed the world with nutritious food while also protecting the planet,” she adds.
