The Mosaic Company (MOS) is an American-based company that produces and markets concentrated phosphate and potash, which are essential nutrients for plant growth. Founded in 2004 as a result of a merger between IMC Global and the crop nutrition division of Cargill, Mosaic has since grown to become one of the world’s leading producers of phosphate and potash. The company is headquartered in Tampa, Florida, and its products are primarily used in the agriculture industry as vital components of fertilizers.
Mosaic operates through two main business segments: Phosphates and Potash. The Phosphates segment mines phosphate rock and produces concentrated phosphate products, including diammonium phosphate (DAP), monoammonium phosphate (MAP), and phosphoric acid. The Potash segment mines potash and produces potassium chloride and other potassium-based products.
The company’s operations are located in the United States, Canada, and internationally, with significant assets in North America, Brazil, and Peru. Mosaic is dedicated to sustainability and environmental stewardship, which can be seen in their efforts to minimize the impact of their mining operations on the environment and their commitment to using best practices in the management of water, energy, and waste.
