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, have grown the business from two shops to the current 24 locations across Tyne and Wear, alongside a thriving wholesale business.
