How you can help save the honey bees

Join us in the fight to save our busiest workers this Spring.

The Plight of the Honey Bees

Unfortunately, due to Colony Collapse Disorder*,  bees are disappearing at an alarming rate, putting the future of our food system at risk. Due to the important role bees play as pollinators, this is dangerous to ecosystems everywhere. Fewer honey bees mean less of the ingredients we need to make your favorite flavors, such as Rocky Road, Mango or our classic Strawberry.

A Decade of Dedication

This is the 10th Anniversary of the "Häagen-Dazs Loves Honey Bees" initiative. For the past ten years, we’ve been committed to using our resources and expertise to help save our hardest workers. That’s why in 2016, we installed 6-1/2 miles of permanent habitat with a steady food source, creating a year-round habitat for the bees.

We believe that by using our passion, resources, and allies, we can all come together to save the honey bees.

We hope you’ll join us. Here are three ways to help:

*Colony Collapse Disorder is an alarming phenomenon where honey bees mysteriously desert their hive and die. Researchers do not know the exact cause, but they believe viruses, mites, chemical exposure, and poor nutrition contribute.
