Welcome to the United Cattle Products supporters' site
United Cattle Products (U.C.P.) Ltd. was a chain of shops and restaurants in the North of England which specialized in tripe dishes. In the 1950s there were 146 restaurants.
In its 68 pages, this site recognizes the historic importance of U.C.P. in promoting tripe in the United Kingdom and its purpose is to help further support the culture of this traditional dish by collecting and sharing memories, documents and images related to the United Cattle Products Ltd.
In Lancashire and other parts of the North of England in the 1950s there were 146 UCP shops-cum-restaurants specialising in tripe dishes and with long queues for seats. UCP stood (and still does at its single remaining outlet) for United Cattle Products, who also provided ox tail, cow heel and other bovine extremities in an age when little was wasted. Tripe was also sold in chip shops.
