Tripe industry 'must learn lessons' of Carillion collapse says chairman

Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has called on those working in the tripe industry to learn the lessons of the collapse of the multinational facilities management giant Carillion.

Speaking at a hastily-convened press conference in Barnsley this lunchtime, Sir Norman said it was important that all managers looked carefully at what had happened with Carillion to ensure that the same would not happen with tripe.

"I am pleased to say that Carillion are not involved with the tripe supply chain, so our customers won't be affected at all," he said.  Nevertheless, it was beholden on the industry to examine the collapse of Carillion so that a similar fate could not befall tripe.

"One of the key lessons is that, well before the company went down the pan, senior executives at Carillion were able to properly secure and protect their bonuses, salary increases and pensions," Sir Norman said, adding "that's why I have today asked our financial team to prepare similar protections for our senior managers."

Sir Norman, who had interrupted his January fact-finding visit to Antigua to return to the UK to brief senior staff, said he felt sure that tripe producers and consumers would support his approach to corporate responsibility. "2018 promises to be a fantastic year for tripe," he said.
