OUR HISTORY

ALMOST 60 DELICIOUS YEARS

From humble beginnings Dixon’s has evolved to a unique and delicious product we have today.

So where did the name Dixon’s come from you may be asking?

 

Actually, it was in August 1961 when Edward Dixon acquired the business from Earnest Rhodes giving us the name we have today.

Many have tried to replicate our product and rumours have been many through the years about the ingredients we use to produce this much sought after milk ice. Some have even romanticised as to what it contains, to the point of it becoming a mystery many would love to solve, I can confidently assure you the mystery will remain for many more years to come. One little secret I can let out of the bag is that we use fresh milk from locally sourced farms, there are no artificial additives’ or stabilisers and it is made fresh every day, for your enjoyment.

By 1973, Edward Dixon needed to expand his business due to popular demand and sought out help from local lad, Charles Cartwright. The business grew rapidly from then onward, and Charles was rewarded for this by becoming a partner in 1992. 

It was a happy and rewarding partnership for many years, however, retirement comes to everyone and in 2003 Edward retired from the business, leaving his son Charles Dixon to take over his father's role and become partners with Charles Cartwright.

So where to now after almost 60 years?

 

We continue to expand the business from our two locations in Huddersfield, and serve our delicious product all year round. 

We look forward to serving you in the near future!
