CCC, Canpotex to supply more potash to Bangladesh

May 23, 2024

Ottawa, CANADA – CCC is pleased to announce that it has signed a new government to government (G2G) contract with the Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation (BADC) for the delivery of Canadian potash from Canpotex Limited. This is the 9th G2G contract that CCC has signed with the BADC over the past decade. Canpotex will source the potash, through its shareholders Mosaic and Nutrien, from mines located in the province of Saskatchewan.  

Almost all potash in Bangladesh is used as a food crop nutrient to improve yields. Food production is the largest employment sector in the country, accounting for 45% of the jobs. BADC is the entity of the Government of Bangladesh that’s responsible for the procurement, storage, transport, and distribution of agricultural supplies required by Bangladeshi farmers, including potash.   

Canada is the world’s largest supplier of potash, accounting for approximately 40% of the global supply. To date, Canpotex has supplied Bangladesh with almost 4 million MT of Canadian potash. CCC has been integral in facilitating the reliable supply of high-quality Canadian potash from Canpotex to the Government of Bangladesh.  

CCC is Canada’s government to government contracting agency. G2G contracts connect qualified Canadian companies with government buyers around the world. Every G2G contract has the legal effect of being signed in the name of the Government of Canada and comes with an assurance of contract performance.

“This G2G agreement for Canpotex’s potash signifies another achievement in the expanding relationship between Canada and Bangladesh.” – Kim Douglas, VP of Business Development and Marketing. 

“Bangladesh may be halfway around the world, but the importance of these potash exports is felt by people and communities across the country – at our shareholders’ mines in Saskatchewan, at the railroads that move our trains, and at our terminals at the Ports in Vancouver and Saint John that load our vessels. Canpotex is committed to reliably supply Bangladesh with high-quality Canadian potash, and we’re proud to partner once again with CCC and BADC to support food security in Bangladesh.” – Gordon McKenzie, President and CEO, Canpotex.
