Yara International ASA in Norway founded the Africa Food Award, formerly known as the Yara Prize, in 2005 to recognize accomplishments in African agriculture.

Individuals from Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Uganda, Malawi, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, and Mozambique were honored with the Yara Award for their accomplishments in boosting the productivity, profitability, and resiliency of African farms.
