Company Profile

Jiffy Worldwide

Jiffy International AS, headquartered in Kristiansand Norway is the leading worldwide supplier of environmentally friendly propagation systems, hydroponic systems, growing containers and substrates for the horticultural industry. Utilizing renewable resources and bio-based materials such as peat, coir, pulp and other bio-mass and plant starches, Jiffy has been on the forefront of sustainability for many years.

Jiffy is a globally operating company and has manufacturing locations strategically located near peat bogs in Canada, Denmark and Norway, producing peat pots and Jiffy-7 pellet propagation systems. Jiffy also manufactures a complete line of coir products at our three manufacturing facilities in Sri Lanka.

Jiffy abides by the highest standards both in safeguarding the environment as well as providing the highest quality, in many cases certified products, to its customers. The professional grower of today relies on the best technical assistance for the products chosen as inputs in their businesses.

Jiffy in South Africa and Africa
In South Africa, Jiffy is represented by Camel Thorn Horticulture (Pty) Ltd. We have a warehouse in Johannesburg and one in Hillcrest, KZN, and from these we supply our customers throughout Southern Africa. We also supply customers across Sub Saharan Africa directly from Jiffy's manufacturing facilities in Sri Lanka, Europe and Canada.

We stock a wide range of Jiffy products in our warehouses with our own truck and drivers for shorter deliveries. We supply growers of vegetables, forestry, pecans, macadamias, roses, vines, flowers, and many other plants with a range of Jiffy products.

Jiffy in South Africa is closely supported by agronomists, technical specialists and marketers from Jiffy's various facilities across the world. These visit our regions regularly and together we support growers across South, East and Southern Africa. We also have a permanent local team.

Company Products

  • Microgreen Plates & Trays
    • The Microgreen plate is a QSM (Quick Soil Media), cocopeat media plate measuring 30cmx40cmx5cm when expanded. The plate is made from RHP certified cocopeat without any fertiliser or wetting agents.
    • Trays have drainage holes but once the coco plank is expanded it holds significant water and very little additional water is needed for germination. Once germinated, watering needs to be more frequent.
    • An innovative way of transplanting orchid young plants.
  • Easy Fill Bag
    • Manufactured out of coco substrate derived from pithy tissues of coconut husk, Jiffy EasyFillBags are a renewable, environmentally friendly substrate with no disposal issues.
  • Substrates
    • Go mixes are standard mixes, ready to go, often in stock and as standard delivered in 70 liter bags. Jiffy can also deliver the Go range in big bales, super and big bags or loose.
  • Jiffypot
    • Roots grow through the pot wall naturally and are air pruned stimulating stronger, more fibrous root development than in plastic pots. There is no need to ‘de-pot' before potting on or planting out which impacts a growers labour savings.
    • The Jiffy-Pot is the environmentally friendly alternative to the excessive use of plastic in horticulture. Jiffy Pots are 100% degradable and approved for organic production, whilst being well suited  to mechanical handling on the Nursery.
  • Preforma®
    • Box Plugs were developed specifically for export, with the capability to be shipped globally at a reduced cost yet still maintaining the highest quality. Plugs can be placed in trays on location by workers, creating jobs and work. The best balance between smart economics and quality.
  • 7C Pellets
    • Jiffy 7C pellets are used extensively by growers all over the world to propagate a wide variety of seeds and cuttings. The pellets are made of coco-peat (hence the 7"C " designation) and are shipped directly from our Sri Lankan factories to distributors all over the world. The compressed nature of the pellets ensure ease of transport.
    • Manufactured out of coco substrate derived from pithy tissues of coconut husk, Jiffy Growblock® is a renewable, environmentally friendly substrate with no disposal issues.
    • Jiffy manufactures a wide range of plastic trays in it's factory in Sri Lanka. The trays are made from 100% recycled plastic and in accordance with ISO 9001 standards.
  • Grow Bags
    • Jiffy grow bags are designed for growing a wide range of crops in hydroponic systems and are made from combinations of RHP certified coco pith and husk chips contained in UV resistant plastic packaging. The grow bags are all 1 metre long, but come in different widths and heights and hence different volumes. The composition of the substrate, (percentage cocopeat vs husk chip), also varies for different bag types.
