Virginia Hayward Logistics Limited
Established in 1984 by Gin and Geoff Hayward, Virginia Hayward Ltd has grown from a cottage enterprise to being a leader in the luxury wine and food hamper industry. The business remains wholly family-owned and managed and employs over 70 full-time staff, with that figure tripling in the weeks before Christmas. We currently operate from over 200,000 square feet of purpose built modern warehousing and office space in Shaftesbury, Dorset. We primarily traded from the same premises in Stour Row but our expansion and the challenges of being split between two sites prompted the move of all operations to Little Down Business Park in Shaftesbury, which was completed in the summer of 2015.
As a business we understand the environmental impacts of our actions and we are constantly working to reduce our waste, increase the amount we recycle and minimise the on-going impacts of our hampers and gifts. From using 100% re-cycled cardboard and bio-degradable packaging, to carefully reviewing our logistics, we place real importance on ensuring we operate in the most environmentally-minded way possible.
