Say hello to DIBS

DIBS Distribution Limited is a family run specialist poultry producer and fast food distributor to restaurants across the UK. They were formed in 1987 and celebrate their 30th year of trading in October 2017

Biography and Brief History

DIBS have come a long way from their humble beginnings in a butchers shop in Paddington in 1987. The Payne brothers created DIBS with the ambition of supplying independent fast food chicken restaurants. Four years later and the success of the business required a move to a purpose built processing factory in Hounslow, Middlesex. During the period from 1991 to 2003 DIBS saw the inclusion of the Payne brothers’ six sons to help with the workload and the fast growing expansion of the business.

In 1999 DIBS relocated to Isleworth, Middlesex to accommodate the growth of their poultry processing activities and the expansion of their nationwide distribution network, which is where they are now based. In total they occupy three buildings to accommodate their fresh, frozen and dry foods warehousing and distribution centres.
