With more than a century of industrial experience, the Belgium-based Prayon Group has over the years developed and acquired expertise and international recognition in the field of phosphate chemicals. Owned equally by Office Chérifien des Phosphates (OCP) and the Wallonia Regional Investment Company (SRIW), Prayon today comprises some 20 companies located in more than 10 countries. At our sites around the world, Prayon manufactures and sells a wide range of mainly phosphate (phosphoric acid and derivative salts) and fluorine products. Turnover in 2006: 554 million Euros.

Generally little known to the general public, Prayon products are used as raw materials in the manufacture of end products. Their many properties mean that they can be used to develop a host of different applications, including food applications, industrial applications, fertilisers and other applications.
