NuFert is a division of Origen Corporation which has been one of the major fertilizer supply companies in Zimbabwe competing with the likes of Omnia, Windmill and ZFC since the 1990’s. Origen was one of the first companies to set up a blending plant in Chinhoyi under the brand of Nutrichem.

 

Nufert brings in substantial quantities of straights fertilizer, which are used for blending at their plant at 600 Seeds in Mt Hampden. It services a wide variety of wholesale clients such as the tobacco industry, tea, sugar, grains and oilseeds (through Staywell contract schemes), potatoes and other crops.

 

The inclusion of NuFert into the Origen family sets up the group to provide the full value chain to the grower locally as well as to markets in the SADC region.

 

NuFert strives to exceed our customers’ expectations in quality, delivery, service and costs by continuous improvement in manufacturing, logistical efficiencies and research.  We strive to set the industry standard in service to customers by ensuring that their product is tailor-made to enhance and benefit farmers’ productivity and income.

Markets and Market Logistics

As fertilizer is a seasonal product, NuFert places stock into its warehouses based on demand levels and known market factors.  Fertiliser is the key ingredient to successful commercial crop production.  This ensures that farmers have the comfort of knowing that they may place orders in time for their specific demand cycles with the knowledge that the product is available.  Seasonal demands are not to be underestimated:  crop production relies heavily on timing of planting to ensure the climatic conditions are utilized effectively.

 

NuFert has linked itself with a number of major international fertiliser suppliers allowing  NuFert to source product competitively and ensure reliability  of supply and quality.
