Ibbitson's of Sunderland The company was started by the present owner’s paternal grandmother who had a small stall in the local market from the 1920s. At the end of the war, her son, Herbert Ibbitson – a marine engineer – returned from sea and purchased a meat permit which entitled him to sell £8 of meat per week, as meat was still rationed.
From these very small beginnings his company grew to be one of the largest independent meat companies in the country, with 14 shops , two factories – supplying many leading supermarkets, local schools and hospitals – and a work force of over 400 people.
Herbert Ibbitson sold the wholesale business in the early 1980s, and the shops at the end of the 1990s. However, he retained the market stall, where his business first started, to give him an interest until the end of his life. It is now run by his daughter and master butcher and sausage maker Shaun.
