Ever wondered how on earth that tripe got onto your plate? Wyatt spends a lot of time doing exactly that. In his role of Director, Global Supply Chain, his responsibility is to support the Board’s strategy and make sure that there is a clearly defined process, from field to plate/bowl, which enables tripe to end up precisely where it is needed, meeting the demands of the most exacting connoisseur, tripe dresser or hound.
Born a Geordie, and proud of his true Northern roots, after leaving university with a degree and a rasping cough, for over 30 years Wyatt has made his career in logistics, and has worked with many of the leading companies in the industry. He now lives with his partner in Switzerland and has tried, without success, to get tripe on the piste.
His grandmother, a Yorkshirewoman, was an avid consumer of tripe, and Wyatt’s first-hand experience, at a very young age, of the aroma of tripe simmering in milk on a bed of onions has left a lasting impression on him. As he says in his own words: “My early exposure to tripe had a profound effect on me. As a consequence, I am determined to ensure that tripe gets exactly the service that it so richly deserves”.

Holly Jahangiri was born across the street from the Daytona
International Speedway, which she credits for her lifelong habit of
going around in circles - very, very fast. In fact, she developed a
lifelong love of travel at an early age, and that is where she was
introduced to the notion of eating odd foodstuffs purely for the
entertainment value. She has gamely tried such terrifying
foods as balut, durian, orchids (the sort normally considered
"decoration only"), caviar, escargot, shark fin soup, kangaroo tail
soup, and turtle soup, to name a few. Tripe nearly did her in, but she's been won over. "I'm determined not to starve in a
post-apocalyptic world. You know, after the Little Green Men turn all
the cows inside out, tripe will be the 'low-hanging fruit.'"
is an avid reader, author of technical manuals and several children's
books, and lives in Houston, Texas, with her husband
of several decades. Her children are grown, now, and glad to have
escaped (most) of her culinary adventures. Her son once shot her in the
eye with a Nerf dart for making him try tripe.
Katrina Murphy, when not playing at being the Managing Director of Katrina Murphy Industrial Relations in Australia, fully devotes her life to her real job of being the Tripe Marketing Board's Australian and South East Asia representative.
Katrina is based in Australia and consults to employer and professional association clients about industrial relations matters, workplace investigations and Human Resources.
Her current special interest is gauging the effectiveness of serving lashings of piping hot tripe at enterprise bargaining meetings instead of the usual chocolate biscuits and Minties.
Katrina likes cats, David Bowie, iced coffee, art and Teddy her Tripe Dog, not always in that order.
