Paradeep Phosphates Limited produces and markets fertilizers, chemicals and their by-products. Paradeep Phosphates Limited is the largest DI-Ammonium Phosphate or DAP plant in Asia and its annual capacity of 720,000 MT.

The organization has incurred huge loss in recent years and was consequently declared sick unit. Its production was stopped. Further it was referred to the Disinvestment Commission in the year 1998. Furthermore, the Commission recommended for strategic sale of not less than 51%. The government of India, cabinet committee on disinvestment ordered for disinvestment of 74% equity sale. Today, M/S Zuari Industries Limited owns the enterprise and it is called as M/S Zuari Maroc Phosphates Private Limited.
