New Zealander George Henry "G.H." Roberts founded this corned meats business, the oldest in San Francisco, in 1910, later bringing his step-sons, Henry and Jim Dixon, into the business. Henry's descendants, Jim Dixon and his daughter Deborah Dixon Ward, run the business today. According to Jim Dixon, G.H. was the first in the U.S. to use the technique of injecting corned beef with brine.
