Scenes from Doreen Hammond's visit to Morocco
Daily Graphic's Features Editor, Doreen Hammond, was one of 17 African journalists who went to Morocco recently on a tour of OCP facilities to understand its operations.
OCP is the largest manufacturer of mineral fertilisers in the world.
The visit was sponsored by the company and gave us (journalists) the opportunity to acquaint ourselves with its operations.
Morocco has the world’s largest deposits of phosphorus with a phosphate rock deposit of more than 70 per cent of what the world has.
