Brief History

National Fertilizer Marketing Limited (NFML) was established in 1976  as Public Limited Company (unlisted), as a subsidiary of National Fertilizer Corporation (NFC) under the administrative control of Ministry of Industries & Production, Government of Pakistan.

The Company was solely responsible for marketing of entire fertilizer production of 2 million Metric Tons of  NFC plants.

NFML also established a technical department to provide technical services to farming community. The agronomic services and advice offered to the farming community in the past has played a vital role to promote and popularize the use of fertilizers in the country.

As per privatization policy of Government of Pakistan, all production plants of NFC have been privatized by the Privatization Commission.

However, since 2008, after privatization of all NFC production plants, Government tasked NFML exclusively to sell imported Urea across the country at uniform price  in order to ensure availability of fertilizers to farmers at right time.

Since then, the Company is performing the challenging task of selling imported Urea in far flung areas of the country through its country-wide dealers network.
