The Tripe Marketing Board is making its final preparations for the celebration of World Tripe Day on Tuesday, 24 October 2017.
This is the fourth World Tripe Day since it was formally inaugurated in 2013 at a celebratory launch at the UK House of Commons. With less than a week to go before the event, the UK tripe industry is looking forward to what promises to be the biggest celebration yet of nature's wonder food.

Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said "This is the one day of the year when no one has to be ashamed to be a tripe lover. Whether you're in Florence, Caen or Wigan, this is your special day!"
Sir Norman, who will be celebrating the day in Rome as a guest of the Italian Guild of Offal Processors, said he was looking forward to the occasion immensely: "Many supposedly more popular foodstuffs have long had their own 'world day'. Now that tripe has one, it is important that we celebrate it in style!" he said.
The Tripe Marketing Board will be issuing suggestions on how tripe lovers can celebrate World Tripe Day via its social media accounts, using the hashtag #worldtripeday. Ideas include hosting a tripe party for friends and family, buying some tripe for your dog and lobbying your MP to establish an All-Party Parliamentary Group on Tripe.
"Whatever your plans, enjoy tripe responsibly," Sir Norman said.
