Johnston and Jeff
Present MD Richard Johnston is the great-grandson of George Gilchrist Johnston who started the business in 1880 with business partner Richard Hunter Jeff. From the very beginning the company’s ethos was do it right.
Quality control is of the utmost importance; it was then and is now. With advancing technologies, the same principles and high regards for standards are expected and adhered to at every level from sourcing ingredients to creating the right blend.
Johnston & Jeff is a family run business, and a business run by a family who are serious about birds, their conservation, welfare, care and needs. As such they are involved with a number of bird societies and avian specialist organisations.
All seeds and nuts are cleaned until they reach a purity level of 99.9%, because 99% isn’t good enough! Only quality ingredients make the grade with many being of human food grade. Pure nourishment is the way to ensure bird`s are fit, healthy and strong, and that is exactly what Johnston and Jeff provide.
All fruit used is human consumption grade, meaning they are in date and identical to that sold to people for their own consumption. Anything less is rejected. Every seed, grain, nut and fruit is sourced and bought under the direct control of one man; MD Richard Johnston. His name is on every product and that’s his own personal guarantee.
