We are absolutely delighted to be finalists in the North West Family Business Awards. It is the first time we have put ourselves forward for an award, and we are all extremely proud to have reached the final.

We are incredibley proud to be a family run business. Founded in 1997 by Ken and Christine Mantle, over the years the family side of the business has grown with Ken and Christine’s two daughters, Philippa and Laura, together with their husbands Chris and Daniel, working alongside each other to ensure Mantle Packaging continues to offer a professional and customer focused service.

Founder and co-director of the awards, Sue Howorth said: “We were inundated with some incredible entries and we have been burning the midnight oil to get through them as they came in right up to the wire. The judges had extremely difficult decisions to make so the finalists should be extremely proud of themselves.”

The awards, hosted by food writer and presenter Nigel Barden, will be held Manchester Airport on March 6.

Congratulations to all our fellow finalists, across the categories, wishing you all the best of luck!
