At Haigh’s we’re very proud to be the oldest family-owned chocolate maker in Australia. Established in Adelaide in 1915 by Alfred E Haigh, the company is now in its fourth generation of Haigh family ownership.
Over the century we have been in business some things have changed, yet many remain the same. Our traditions, quality and passion for chocolate making continue. We still use only the very best, freshest ingredients and pride ourselves on being chocolate ‘bean to bar’ specialists. We are committed to the art of premium chocolate making from cocoa beans sourced from plantations around the world. Roasting our own cocoa beans enables us to develop our own unique blends of premium milk and dark chocolate with distinct aroma, texture and flavour.
Our cooking processes are unique. Our factory teams use meticulous artisan skills combined with the latest in modern manufacturing, high levels of training, equipment and techniques to create chocolates that look and taste delicious. Many of our chocolates continue to be hand-made and finished.
Each year our team of confectioners work to create new recipes and perhaps fine-tune old favourites to ensure we continue to offer our customers a diverse selection of the most delectable chocolates. There is something for everyone with a choice of over 250 varieties from chocolate frogs to gift boxes of hand-dipped truffles. Read more about our chocolate making here.
Our aim is to ensure the Haigh’s customer experience is one of quality. Visit any one of our stores and you’ll find that chocolate tasting, gift wrapping and personalised attention is all part of the service.
Today we employ over 600 people throughout our factory, administration and 20 retail stores located across Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and online at haighschocolates.com
Parkside, just outside the city centre of Adelaide South Australia, is where you’ll also find our Visitor Centre. Here we conduct free factory viewing tours where you can take a short first-hand look at how we make our chocolates. Our tours are very popular with tourists, clubs and groups, and the locals as well.
