Ascension Parish President Kenny Matassa has proclaimed Friday, Dec. 23 as “CF Industries Day in Ascension Parish.”

“CF Industries is the largest fertilizer producer in the world,” Matassa said. “They have been an important employer and taxpayer in Ascension Parish for 50 years. After a $2.1 Billion expansion that started two years ago, they now employ a thousand people directly and indirectly. So we honor them today for their success and commitment to Ascension Parish.”
