Tripe and Blancmange: A Marriage Made in Hebden

Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has expressed his sadness on hearing the news yesterday of the closure of Yorkshire Blancmange, the country's foremost blancmange marketing agency.

The closure comes after the death of Mr Josiah Bickerstaffe, the Honorary President of the League of Blancmangiers, based in Hebden.

Speaking late last night, Sir Norman said "It is always sad when a fellow food marketing agency has to close its doors, particularly one which is promoting a product - like ours - that divides the nation."

Sir Norman said that the TMB had previously collaborated with Yorkshire Blancmange by providing copywriting expertise for its popular 'Blancmange is a dish best served cold' slogan.

"On a more positive note, we have agreed to help sell a number of redundant promotional t-shirts that Yorkshire Blancmange had left when they closed, and these are available on our website now," he added.

£1 from the sale of each t-shirt will go towards the TMB's #MSisOffal campaign for the UK Multiple Sclerosis Society.
