Safer Phosphates™ is a Dutch Foundation who’s aim is to contribute to EU policy & regulatory debates around fertilisers. Safer Phosphates seek to increase the awareness about the presence of contaminants in fertilising products and, indirectly, our food, stressing the availability of low-contaminated products both in Europe and globally. The ultimate objective of Safer Phosphates is promoting a sustainable agriculture and better food in Europe through enhanced competition on the European market of low-contaminated fertilisers.
