A delegation from the Tripe Marketing Board today embarks on a visit to Skiathos as part of a fact-finding mission designed to ensure that the British tripe industry is well-equipped to capitalise on the continued austerity in the months and years ahead.
As most of the communications team will be part of this mission, we
