Yara – With a license to grow

Yara International has set out to grow in Brazil, as well as making Brazil grow efficiently.

Effective from 8 August 2013, Yara’s acquisition of Bunge’s fertilizer business in Brazil is an important step forward for our growth ambitions in Latin America.

On a warm and clear Brazilian day, Yara’s President and CEO Jørgen Ole Haslestad, alongside Yara’s Head of Downstream Egil Hogna and Chief Human Resources Officer Håkan Hallén, visited the newly acquired fertilizer facility in Cubatão on 9 September. The host was President of Yara Brazil, Lair Hanzen. The background for the visit was the recently completed acquisition of Bunge’s fertilizer division. Plans have been made to meld the two into a united company.
