Qualvis Print & Packaging and Clifton Packaging have been shortlisted at the 2016 Leicester Mercury Business Awards.
Entering the 'Company of the Year' award, the annual Leicester Mercury Business Awards recognise the achievement of regional companies that are boosting the economy and making a positive contribution to the community.
Shahid Sheikh, managing director of Clifton Packaging, added: "To be chosen as one of the three finalists in our 35th anniversary makes the occasion even more special for all at Clifton. Packaging companies in the UK whether it be flexible, rigid, glass or metal are often the unsung heroes of the economy as not many realise how valuable packaging actually is in our daily lives. So it is an honour to have two packaging companies shining the torch together at this most prestigious event."
The awards take place on 21 April in Leicester.
