Our broad Jiffy portfolio offers you an incredible variety of options to create tailor-made solutions for your business. And we are always willing to listen to you, our clients, to help us all technically improve in order to feed and beautify the world while caring for the environment. With our portfolio of pots, pellets, coir products, substrates and plugs we aim to help your company find the best solution for your growing needs.
Jiffy is perhaps best known for the “Jiffy Pot”. This root protection and propagation product was launched in the early 1950s and gained huge success in the US & European markets.
Another innovative Jiffy product which is equally well-known in the growing industry today, is the Jiffy-7 pellet. This product was launched in the late 1960s and began production in North America in 1982. Today, billions of plants all over the world are started in a Jiffy in many various types of plant propagation industries.
Thanks to the 2002 acquisition of Preforma Plant Plug Jiffy became a world leader in state-of-the art propagation systems. Most recently, we also become leaders in the coir (coconut fibre) market, with our own pellet factory based in Mirigama, Sri Lanka.
This facility produces not only the new Jiffy-7C pellet, but also top-quality hydroponic media such as Jiffy Growbags and Jiffy Growblocks made from RHP certified coir – as well as ingredients for Jiffy’s wide range of peat-reduced and peat-free substrate mixes. These substrates are produced in our production locations in Estonia, The Netherlands and Canada.
