The K+S Group is an internationally-oriented raw material company with production plants in Europe and America and an international sales network. K+S is one of the world’s top producers of special and standard fertilisers and the world’s leading salt producer following the acquisition of the North American company Morton Salt in 2009. K+S supplies the agricultural sector with the plant nutrients potassium, nitrates, phosphate, magnesium and sulphur. With its offer of high-quality fertilisers, the company makes a considerable contribution to feeding the world’s growing population. The high-quality salt products from K+S are the basis for numerous areas of use: salt for the food industry, as a preservative or as pharmaceutical salt in its purest form and as de-icing salt for safety on winter roads. The K+S Group now generates about half of its sales outside Europe and its fertilisers in particular are much in demand abroad.
