TMB advises customers not to panic about 5p plastic bag charges

The Tripe Marketing Board has moved to reassure customers that they will not have to pay 5p for a plastic bag when they purchase tripe.

Raw meat is exempt from the new charge which comes into force in England today.

TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "We know that many potential purchasers are worried about how to package and convey tripe.  Many people have concerns about the smell of tripe and plastic carrier bags can be a useful way to carry our product home and help to reduce the smell quite substantially until it can be stored appropriately."

In a bid to allay concerns, the Tripe Marketing Board has issued a Fact Sheet advising consumers on  how to safely store tripe and minimise any odour problems.  This is available at selected tripe retailers from today.

"We want people to enjoy tripe and we hope the knowledge that they will not have to pay for plastic bags will enhance their enjoyment of our product," Sir Norman said.
