With a vision to acquire self - sufficiency in fertilizer production in the country, FFC was
incorporated in 1978 as a private limited company. This was a joint venture between
Fauji Foundation (a leading charitable trust in Pakistan) and Haldor Topsoe A/S of
The initial authorized capital of the company was 813.9 Million Rupees. The present
share capital of the company stands at Rs. 3.0 Billion. Additionally, FFC has Rs. 1.0
Billion stakes in the subsidiary Fauji Fertilizer Bin Qasim Limited (formerly FFC-Jordan
Fertilizer Company Limited).
FFC commenced commercial production of urea in 1982 with annual capacity of 570,000
Through De-Bottle Necking (DBN) program, the production capacity of the existing
plant increased to 695,000 metric tons per year.
Production capacity was enhanced by establishing a second plant in 1993 with annual
capacity of 635,000 metric tons of urea.
FFC participated as major shareholders in a new DAP/Urea manufacturing complex with
participation of major international/national institutions. The new company Fauji
Fertilizer Bin Qasim Limited (formerly FFC-Jordan Fertilizer Company Limited)
commenced commercial production with effect from January 01, 2000. The facility is
designed to produce 551,000 metric tons of urea and 445,500 metric tons of DAP.
This excellent performance was due to hard work and dedication of all employees and the
progressive approach and support from the top management.
In the year 2002, FFC acquired ex Pak Saudi Fertilizers Limited (PSFL) Urea Plant
situated at Mirpur Mathelo, District Ghotki from National Fertilizer Corporation (NFC)
through privatisation process of the Government of Pakistan.
This acquisition at Rs. 8,151 million represents one of the largest industrial sector
transactions in Pakistan
FFC's mission is to sustain its role as the leader in industrial and agricultural
advancement of Pakistan by setting and achieving new and higher goals and taking
initiatives. The Company is committed to ensuring safe and conducive work
environment, providing high quality products and allied services to its customers and
profitable returns to its shareholders.
FFC is focused on harmonizing its capabilities and maximizing its potential. FFC's vision
for the future envisages diversification and undertaking ventures at home and abroad in
collaboration with leading international partners.
Another major landmark for Fauji Fertilizer Company is ISO-9002 certification for its
manufacturing division at Goth Machhi. Quality in all areas has been a hallmark of the
Company right from the beginning and our product "SONA UREA" has already
established its rightful place in the market.
Therefore, to bring our system in line with internationally recognized quality standards,
we decided to go for ISO-9002 certification.
To achieve a total quality management system, we surpassed the requirement of
ISO-9002 standards by including all support services like Administration, Personnel,
Finance, Hospital, Schools and Management Club etc. also in the certification scope.
We selected Bureau of Veritas Quality International (BVQI), England, a leading
certification agency as our registrar.BVQI is honoured by various accreditation
authorities of the world.
Quality Management System of FFC got ISO certified in its first attempt during
November 1997 with the honor of being the 1st Fertilizer Plant in Pakistan. Since then we
have not looked back. We have passed all surveillance audits with commendable remarks
from our registrar.
Since 21 February, 2001 Quality Management System of FFC now stands recertified
(ISO 9002) by BVQI after successful completion of initial certification period of 3 years.

Marketing Division, setup in July, 1978 is responsible for all marketing operations
including planning, distribution, sales, farm advisory services, field warehousing, finance
and administration. With the commencement of commercial production in June 1982, the
company started marketing its urea under the brand name "Sona".
The company markets not only Sona urea but also imported nitrogen, phosphate and
potash based fertilizers
The Company is also marketing half a million tonnes of sona urea granular manufactured
by Fauji Fertilizer Bin Qasim (formerly FFC – Jordan Fertilizer Co. Ltd).
When FFC came into the market with its production in June 1982, the other
manufacturers namely Engro, Dawood Hercules and National Fertilizer Corporation were
already well established in the market. The brands of Engro (Engro) and Dawood
Hercules (Babber Sher) were considered premium brands in Sindh and Central Punjab
FFC had to face very tough competition from the beginning. This competition coupled
with the huge surplus of urea in the domestic market posed a great challenge to the
company in the initial years. FFC not only met the challenge by capturing the desired
market share but in the process, enhanced the brand image of its product Sona urea which
has become the number one brand. During the period 1983 to 1986 when a large urea
surplus existed in the country, FFC pioneered urea exports which not only helped in
stabilizing domestic urea but also earned valuable foreign exchange for the country.
The Government of Pakistan deregulated the trade and prices of phosphatic fertilizers on
21 August 1993. Subsequent to this decision FFC started import of these fertilizers and as
a result timely supplies were arranged. Farmers were thus provided with quality product
in bags with guaranteed correct weight and this brought about a very positive qualitative
change in the phosphatic fertilizer business in the country. The Marketing Division now
has the necessary expertise to handle fertilizer imports and exports.
FFC believes in selling a programme rather than just a product. For this, the company has
adopted a customer oriented strategy, marketing quality products backed by efficient and
- 21 -
effective support services with emphasis on developing the market through practical and
innovative farmer education
Their motto/slogan is very easy which is
ﺍﭽﻬﻰ ﻜﻬﺍﺩ ﺍﭽﻬﺍ ﺩﻭﺳﺕ
They start their drama for farmers “SONA CHANDI”
