We are proud to announce that we won the International Trade Award at the Leicester Mercury Business Awards last Thursday (28/04/17). In our category, we were up against some great, inspirational businesses based in Leicester and knew we would have some competition.
We were ecstatic when we made it as finalists in our category, so going along to the awards ceremony in the evening and being announced as winners, we were over the moon!
John Dakin, one of the VeriVide directors said, “Winning means everything to us. We design, develop and manufacture in Leicester and ship our products abroad and if there was more of that in the UK it would be a very different world we live in. The award is recognition of our team of very loyal staff who have gained respect for what we do worldwide.”
