Norwegian company deal with Argentine farmer to de-carbonise potato crisps

Yara, a Norwegian company, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Argentina's biggest potato farmer, El Parque Papas, over deliveries of fertilizers produced without using fossil fuels, Yara said yesterday. The deal is Yara's first of its kind outside Europe, with its first commercial agreement inked with Sweden's Lantmaennen last year, it said.

Most of El Parque Papas potatoes end up as crisps, which will have a lower carbon footprint as a result of applying Yara's "green" fertilizer, produced using renewable electricity instead of natural gas. "The fertilizers, which will be launched next year, will be crucial for decarbonizing potato production," Yara said in a statement.
