PLYMOUTH, Minn., April 12, 2013 /CNW/ - The Mosaic Company (NYSE: MOS) has

        operations by 50 percent over the last 20 years.

        affirming its deep commitment to operate according to
        universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights,

Mosaic also was noted for its philanthropy and the investments of The Mosaic 
Company Foundation—including The Mosaic Villages Project—which is moving 
300,000 smallholder farmers out of poverty in ten countries on three 
continents. Watch videos about how The Mosaic Villages Project farmers are 
improving their livelihoods by growing more food through sustainable
