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.
