About ICL
Our history began in the early 20th century with the first efforts to extract minerals from the Dead Sea in Israel's South. During this period, several other state-owned companies were created to extract minerals from the Negev Desert and transform them into chemical products. Over the years, many of these companies were joined to become today’s ICL (Israel Chemicals Ltd.).

Today we are a global powerhouse in fertilizers and specialty chemicals with production activities located in Israel, Europe, the US, South America and China, and a worldwide marketing and logistics network. Nearly 50% of our sales are derived from products manufactured outside of Israel, demonstrating the geographical diversity of our operations.

ICL has expanded its global presence in established markets such as North America and Europe, as well as in targeted emerging regions, such as China, India and Brazil. This expansion has also resulted from business acquisitions and the establishment of Regional centres and joint ventures with strong, local partners. By focusing on products that contribute to the world’s long-term sustainability, we believe that this is enhancing our positioning in markets with strong long-term growth potential.
