In 2000, the Herholdt Brothers began manufacturing premium fertilisers at their factory in Philadelphia in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. Originally produced under a different brand name, the range became well established and popular throughout South Africa, proving successful in all agricultural sectors, including vineyard, wheat, fruit and vegetable farming.

The initial focus was on organic and semi-organic products, which are still produced today. Water-soluble premixes have recently been added to the range due to market demand.

Atlantic Fertilisers is recognised nationally for its high standard of products as well as its unique consulting services which involves GPS-referenced soil sampling by dedicated agri-consultants, laboratory analysis, feedback, guidance and follow ups.

Today Atlantic Fertilisers is widely recognised as a supplier of premium high quality fertilisers.
