FertilizerBagsed

The PF government has contracted a Philippine company called Philippine Phosphate Fertilizer Corporation (PhilPhos) to export its fertilizer products to Zambia.

PhilPhos recently exported around 400 million Peso worth of phosphate fertilizers, which represents 4% of its total exports this year.

Chairman of PhilPhos Salvador B. Zamora II said the company is the first Filipino fertilizer company to export to the African continent.

He said in a statement that penetrating the African market is a major milestone for the firm as it continuously seeks to expand its footprint in other parts of the globe.

Mr. Zamora II said PhilPhos chose Zambia as its entry point in Africa because of its promising agriculture industry, a key growth driver of its economy.

He said his company believes that through its exports, it can help improve the agriculture sector further and generate more jobs for the people.

PhilPhos sees great potential in Zambia, which is opening its doors to foreign investments.

It exports around 65% of its total production outside the Philippines, particularly Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Cambodia as well as to India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Taiwan.

    • Iam now convinced That The Evil Post news Paper along Bwinjimfumu Membe,Amos malupenga and all the other criminals at the post committed the waste Polical criminal offence to Zambians by defrauding us and running a mudsliding evil smear campaign to ash IN PF a corrupt government, look at how membe insulted and dehumanised innocent HH. Zambians Must rise up and see membe’s lies and its high time membe and the post are buried and stop deciding or being a litmus or reference standard by Which Zambia democracy should be governed. Who is Membe any way. He is not a god. Am Glad Father Bwalya has also realized that Zambians made a f00lish mistake for votting for PF. I pray Membe to go to Gehena and burn in the bottomless pit of Hell.

    • What is the progress if any on Nitrogen chemicals so that we stop these costly imports and create jobs for ourselves?

      Looking at the nature of our leaders, all these contracts mean someone in govt had a cut

    • I remember Enock Kavindele when he wanted to import fertilizer from Malaysia.
      What happened.
      The question I ask to these dull chaps. Do philipinos know the soil types of Zambia? It is not a matter of importing fertilizer. there is need to meet specification. Advice consult DRs at Unza or any Qualified soil scientifics.
      Your memories are short… People were complaining about somethings that looked liked fertilisers, but it was not.
      Goodluck Chaps. More lowering soil pH. “Kill the soil” truely Paya Farmer

    • My question is why does every new administration have to change where we buy imports such as fertiliser? Does this mean this new supplier is cheaper or simply a new PF cartel stand to have a cut. I think I can figure that one out……

    • Mwanawasa referred the graduates as HALF BARKED … How you expect them to carry out their work when they weren’t well trained. Alot of money is leaving the country which could be easily prevented by strengthening local industry.

  6. We have huge deposits of phosphorus mineral in Zambia why not put up our own manufacturing plant ?

    In RB time there was a Russian company that wanted to put up a Phosphorus fertiliser plant in Zambia.

  7. NCZ recently received some massive cash injection, what has gone amiss? We must be wary, international players can be so frustrating just in order to promote their agenda and with it their own prefered participants in running industries. Is there truly a very candid reason why NCZ can not supply fertilizer for our farmers? I would be very happy to grow crops with fertilizer made by fwebene! Little wonder why ZAMTEL, ZR failed. Can we even own zambian sponsored copper mines? Everything is going foreign: land, companies, labour, next will be politicians, we may need to source from outside – may be sourcing politicians from foreign countries will solve the puzzle! 13 million people can not produce fertilzer, man. Those who worked for NCZ must be turning in graves.

  8. What happened to the chemicals plant in Zambia?
    How was the contract with the PhilPhos initiated and concluded? Zambia being Zambia there is never a clean contract when Zambians are involved and this one is no exception, some hands must have been oiled and soon they will be reporting on their Facebook that a good chunk has been paid to PhilPhos without giving the actual amount in figures. There is nothing to be excited about in this story.

  9. ANOTHER DISASTER OF THE DAY. FERTILIZER TO COME ALL THE WAY FROM PHILIPINES???? WHY NOT ASK THEM TO OPEN A PLANT IN ZAMBIA SO THAT ZAMBIAN YOUTH CAN BE EMPLOYED?? SO HAS NCZ Closed or This is Another Deal by PLOT ONE TO MAKE MONEY?? YOU DON’T TRUST ZAMBIAN LEADERS. THEY WOULD FRUSTRATE ANY INITIATIVES AT NCZ FOR SOMEONE TO MAKE CASH. VERY VERY SAD AND SHAMEFUL.

  13. I suspect Fr Bwalya had some information on this deal before he resigned. If you remember his interview on Qfm radio he did talk about pumping more money in Kafue Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia so that we do not import fertilizer and our leaders do not take advantage by making money through corruption. Sata and his government at work

    • Where is one going to get organic fertiliser for his 4 hectare maize field from if one is a poor subsistence farmer? Are you going to personally produce it for him?

    • Troy, please note you actually have got it the wrong way round. Organic fertilizers are both manufactured in factories in huge quantities in granular form and bagged in 50kgs, as well as easily made at home e.g. compost. Chemical fertilizers are manufactured in factories in granular form and bagged in 50kgs BUT not easily made at home. So, given a choice, informed substance farmers actually go for organic fertilizer among many other good reasons.

  16. @20-greatboy, Spot on. Why are we still going for chemical fertilizers instead of the organic fertilizers in this day and age? Does PF even know the long-term effects of these chemicals they have signed up to, to our soils?

  17. Is the fertilizer to be supplied under the 2013 Farmer Input Support Programme (FISP)? Is the type of fertilizer Urea or D Compound? What quantity is this company contracted to deliver?

  20. These I.D.I.O.T.S have failed to revamp N.C.Z or better still build small modern fertilizer plants across the country to reduce on transportation. It is well known that Agriculture is one of the important sectors in Zambia and hence the need for government to invest. Why are we making other countries rich at our own expense?I am sure somebody in the system is getting a cut from this deal. We have all the raw materials needed to produce fertilizer. We Africans are cursed for sure.

  23. Heard something in Parliament when Rupia Banda’s immunity was being lifted that Nyiombo Investments – fertilizer co had given RB USD one million?? I hope people now understand why NCZ was never capitalised by MMD. If they did capitalise NCZ both compound D and urea fertizers would have been produced by NCZ and RB and MMD wouldnt have corruptly benefited.
