Jiffy's new innovation center with climate chamber

Jiffy Group and Light4Food have announced the opening of Jiffy’s new Innovation Center, which features a university-standard laboratory and a climate chamber. Essentially a space that recreates the highly controlled environment of vertical farming, the climate chamber includes:

  • Priva software to monitor the growing environment, collect data, and store and execute growing recipes
  • Multiple sections to test different products for the cultivation of leafy greens, herbs, ornamentals, and more
  • Philips GreenPower LED production modules with a GrowWise control system that is adjustable per section
  • Dripper, ebb & flow, gutter, and pond fertigation systems

Jiffy’s Innovation Center is located at 1Plant, its flagship production facility in Zwijndrecht, Netherlands. The center enables the growing media specialist to carry out university-standard materials and plant growth research in-house.

Light4Food custom-built the climate chamber for Jiffy. Thanks to Light4Food’s extensive experience, it could advise on everything from the ideal location to the software controlling the processes.

“As well as building climate chambers and hydroponic systems for customers worldwide,” says René van Haeff, Light4Food Managing Director, “we have several climate chambers of our own for R&D purposes.”
