Anuvia to Open Bio-Based Fertilizer Plant

Bio-based fertilizer manufacturer Anuvia Plant Nutrients revealed plans Tuesday to re-open part of a shuttered Mosaic Company phosphate plant in Plant City, FL to increase its production capacity. 

In addition to signing a long-term lease for the property, Anuvia also formed a long-term strategic partnership with Mosaic Company, the firm announced in a press release. Once the site becomes operational, Anuvia will increase its capacity from 80,000 tn/yr to up to 1.2 million tn/yr. The bio-based fertilizer firm also operates another production facility in Zellwood, FL. 

“In the three years since the Zellwood plant went online, the market has been receptive to our products and its unique benefits,” Anuvia Plant Nutrients Chief Executive Officer Amy Yoder said in a statement. “And now in response to the increased demand, we are increasing our production capacity. It is gratifying that farmers are realizing the performance and environmental benefits Anuvia products bring to crop production.”

As the expansion moves forward, Anuvia plans to fill 135 new jobs at the Plant City facility. Workers employed at the site will earn an average annual salary of $70,000.

“Mosaic has been looking to partner with successful, innovative companies and this arrangement which includes an equity position is an excellent fit for us,” Walt Precourt, senior vice president of strategy and growth at Mosaic, said in the release. “Both companies are committed to operating safely and sustainably while providing customers with high quality crop nutrient solutions. We look forward to exploring opportunities to further expand our relationship.”

Anuvia’s products are used in the agricultural sector, turf industry, and consumer residential lawn market.
