About Us

hdlogo
Häagen-Dazs’ founder, Reuben Mattus, experimented and tested for decades until he perfected the world’s finest ice cream in 1961. Since then, Häagen-Dazs™ has maintained a timeless tradition of producing only the best quality ice cream and desserts, offering consumers an exceptional eating experience second to none. Lovingly crafted from only the finest ingredients, Häagen-Dazs™ is the ultimate luxury ice cream.

The creaminess of our ice cream is achieved by using only fresh cream. We also whip less air into our ice cream so that you get to enjoy the unique ‘melt in the mouth’ moments for which Häagen-Dazs™ is renowned. From its foundation until today, purity and authenticity are cherished by Häagen-Dazs™: We don’t add any artificial stabilizers, preservatives, flavourings or colourings.

We travel the world for the best ingredients: cream of the highest quality, fresh from the dairy, vanilla from Madagascar, chocolate from Belgium, and when the season allows, macadamia nuts from Hawaii and South Africa.

passion and quality No corner of the world is too remote in our quest for perfection. If it’s the best, we’ll find it! Then we blend the ingredients gently, with minimal air, so each scoop is dense and creamy for that luxurious lingering taste; and so divine that it takes a longer time to soften into blissful pleasure…making the Häagen-Dazs™ moment truly Anticipated Like No Other™

Crafted for the sophisticated palate, our indulgent flavours and unique creations set us apart: flavors like Macadamia Nut Brittle, Salted Caramel and Strawberry Cheesecake; and our latest innovation Secret Sensations, an exquisite multi-textured creation with a soft heart of sauce inspired by the world’s favorite desserts.
