LITHIA — For employees, working at Mosaic isn’t just about mining potash and phosphate and turning it into fertilizer.
It’s about feeding a growing population and helping farmers reap more food from every acre of finite crop land.
“The world needs us,” goes the corporate mantra.
The top U.S. producer of potash and phosphate fertilizer employs about 1,200 people in Hillsborough County, making it one of the largest private employers in the region.
