Mississippi Phosphates adds MAP to its lineup
Mississippi Phosphates Corporation (MPC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Phosphate Holdings, Inc., announced the addition of Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP) to its product line, beginning in mid February 2014.
Mississippi Phosphates has long produced Diammonium Phosphate (DAP) sold through traditional domestic and international channels. The addition of MAP to the MPC product portfolio will allow the Company to take advantage of broader market opportunities. In broadening its product mix, MPC will combine internal marketing efforts with an exclusive off-take agreement for MAP with Interoceanic Corporation (IOC), of Ossining, N.Y., in an effort to enhance its targeting of value-added market sectors. IOC's proven market success in the industry will be in direct support of MPC's new market strategy.
