The Tripe Marketing Board has welcomed the government’s plans to extend the Help To Buy Tripe Scheme.
The first stage of Help to Buy was launched in April and offers loans to give people the chance to buy fresh tripe with a deposit of just 5 per cent. The scheme has been credited with driving a surge in tripe sales and driving up prices.
A Tripe Marketing Board spokesperson dismissed claims that the scheme could lead to another tripe bubble as “poppycock.”
“Tripe prices have rocketed over the last few years but the market is currently stagnating. The price of tripe is now beyond the means of many people who would like to purchase some but are unable to do so. This scheme will ensure that you will be able to buy tripe even if you are unable to afford it.”
