About Dietz & Watson

Dietz & Watson was founded in 1939 by Gottlieb Dietz, a talented young German sausage maker. His primary goal was to produce the most flavorful, highest quality deli meats in the marketplace, to please even the most discriminating palate. His old-world recipes and commitment to “quality above all” demanded nothing less than the freshest lean beef, ham, pork turkey breast and chicken breast. He then added only the finest all-natural spices and seasonings gathered from around the world.

Today, at Dietz & Watson, the third generation of the family continues Gottlieb Dietz’s dedication and commitment in preparing our Premium Deli Meats and Artisan Cheeses. In fact, all of our standards exceed those set by government guidelines.

Our mission is always both perfection and originality. This is how we prepare wholesome, nutritious and uniquely premium meats. And, our Master cheese makers create our hand-churned, small batch cheeses with the same commitment to “quality above all”.
