Mission and vision
Yara operates in an increasingly interconnected world. Private businesses relate to the same global challenges as society at large – not least connected to population growth, food insecurity, resource scarcity and climate change. These challenges can only be met by global responses, including business engagement.
170 years in the UK
Our history is living proof of our commitment and consistency all the way from the beginning in the UK in 1843, through our acquisition by Norsk Hydro in 1982 until today, 170 years later.

Yara can look back on more than 170 years of business in the UK developing and supplying high quality plant nutrient products for farmers and growers and more recently suppliers to the amenity and protected glasshouse sectors.

Since the start in 1843 until today, the company’s main focus has been to be a leading crop nutrition provider specializing in nitrogen fertilizers and latterly industrial products. With different company names and acquisitions, evolving from Fisons, to Yara UK Limited via Norsk Hydro and Hydro Agri whilst incorporating Chafer liquid fertilizers and Phosyn foliar and micro-nutrient products, the company has provided customers in the UK with superior products, services and the best advice.
