Yara starts winding-down of sourcing of Belarusian potash

Yara has said that the effects on the supply chain from the current sanctions on Belarus have forced the company to initiate a wind-down of its sourcing of Belarusian potash.

“The effects of the current sanctions on Belarus reduce Yara’s ability to positively influence the safety and well-being of Belaruskali workers. For Yara, this is a disappointing development. We remain strongly committed to the safety and well-being of Belaruskali’s workers. Despite the wind-down of potash sourcing, Yara aims to continue the industrial safety program initiated in 2021, in close cooperation with the independent trade union in Belaruskali and in full compliance with applicable sanctions,” said Svein Tore Holsether, President & CEO of Yara International.

The wind-down is expected to be completed by 1 April 2022. Yara has said it will continue to monitor for any changes in the situation, including sanctions, as part of its ongoing sourcing operations.
