Our History & Milestones

The company was founded by Dr. K.K. Birla, one of India's most respected industrialists. He realized early that to fulfill India's food security needs, the agri industry urgently needs infusion of science and technology. The reasoning was sound. 70% of India was an agrarian society. Farmers would always require fertilisers, of which there was an acute shortage. The demand would only increase with the years. And there was a clear need for self-reliance in such an important field. A decision was taken to align with the best in the world to bring cutting edge technologies into India.

First a Urea Plant was set up near Village Sancoale in Goa by Zuari Industries Limited in 1967. In the year 1985, Zuari Industries Limited promoted Chambal Fertilisers and Chemicals Limited. With the passage of time, Chambal Fertilisers has consolidated its position in agri - business and diversified into shipping, textiles, software and manufacturing of phosphoric acid.
