Canpotex has opened a sales office in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
That country is the largest market for Canpotex potash, consuming almost a quarter of the company’s potash shipments.
CEO Ken Seitz says their goal is to capitalize on expected growth in demand in Brazil and improve the company’s position in an already competitive market environment.
Since 1972, Canpotex has exported almost 35 million tonnes of potash to Brazil.
Canpotex is Canada’s largest mineral exporter. Its head office is in Saskatoon.
