Established in 1953, M. I. Dickson Ltd is Tyne and Wear’s leading family-run manufacturer, retailer and wholesaler of own recipe meat and food products.
Founded by Michael Irwin Dickson in a shop at the Nook in South Shields, where all products were manufactured in the back shop, Michael built a reputation for the quality and flavour of his pork products.
At the time of his death in 1966, he had 2 shops. Michael’s son (also called Michael) and elder daughter, Christine, grew the business from 2 shops to 25 stores before Christine’s premature death in 2013. Since then Michael, along with the third generation and our first non family Managing Director has grown the business to over 30 locations across the North East.find out more
