Global complementary chemical services company Omnia Group CEO Seelan Gobalsamy has been appointed to the board of the International Fertilizer Association (IFA).

The IFA has over 450 members spanning 78 countries. Driven by a mission to promote responsible and efficient production, distribution and use of plant nutrients, the IFA plays a pivotal role in ensuring sustainable agricultural practices that contribute to feeding the world's growing population.

"Food security and supply chains have been propelled to the fore in recent years. Climate change is likely to exacerbate the shortfalls in the global food supply system. Joining a global organisation dedicated to solving the interlinked issues of food security, sustainability and employment has never been more important,” Gobalsamy comments.

Omnia states that, at the core of the group's purpose is the imperative to innovate, not just for the sake of progress, but with the profound intention of enhancing lives and contributing to a more sustainable and resilient world.

Joining the IFA board presents an opportune platform for Omnia to accelerate the transition to sustainable and intelligent farming practices that will ensure the efficient use of the planet's scarce arable land.

“Food security is a fundamental human right and, as a company dedicated to innovation, we bear a responsibility to be at the forefront of solutions. As we navigate an era marked by climate change and a growing global population, our purpose as a business gains even greater significance.

"We are proud to be actively participating in the creation of a world where every individual has access to sufficient, nutritious food produced on a sustainable basis,” says Gobalsamy.

“Africa has an important role to play in feeding the global population, yet it is also the continent most affected by food insecurity. Omnia’s unique knowledge and capabilities in developing cutting-edge solutions that address the complex challenges hindering global food security will be invaluable to our industry.

"We welcome and look forward to working with Seelan Gobalsamy on our board,” adds IFA CEO Alzbeta Klein.
