The joint stock company Fosfa is the largest processor of yellow phosphorus in Europe and a successful exporter. Apart from the food industry and industrial applications, Fosfa also focuses on the development and production of ecological products. Under the brand name Feel Eco, it produces ecological care products for both body and household. At the same time, it runs the first ever Czech vertical farm Feel Greens, where it cultivates microgreens, herbs and salads using hydroponics. Last but not least, it produces and distributes electricity and natural gas from renewable sources and waste heat.
Fosfa a.s. was founded in 1884. Its modern history, however, began to be written after years of profound decline in 2002. After successfully restoring phosphoric acid production, the company also decided to invest in the production of special phosphorus-based applications and in the detergent and energy division.
We export our products to more than 80 countries worldwide

"A big thank you to all my colleagues for their inventiveness and commitment. They deserve credit for where Fosfa is today. If our ideas were not more inventive than those of others, if we were not able to implement these ideas quickly and in a meaningful way, we, the Czech Republic, would have to resign ourselves to a secondary role of a supplier for those who are more inventive than us. This is not what we in Fosfa want." Ivan Baťka, CEO

Fosfa’s CEO Ivan Baťka accepts the Invention – Commitment – Export – Profit Category Award from the hands of the Minister of Industry and Trade Jan Mládek.
