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.
