We are Proudly South Australian
February 13, 2014
It was 1st May 1915, when Alfred E Haigh opened the doors of the very first Haigh’s Chocolates store at number 34 King William Street Adelaide, South Australia
Almost 100 years later we continue to be based in Adelaide employing over 500 people across our factory, administration and 14 retail stores. Our staff continue to uphold our strong traditions of quality and passion for fine chocolate making.
We are very proud to be the oldest family-owned chocolate retailer in Australia. The company is run by fourth generation Haighs, Alister and Simon. The factory and head office administration is located in Parkside, South Australia – the site of Alfred Haigh’s home from 1919.
We are chocolate making specialists, one of the very few chocolate retailers in the world who source and manufacture chocolate from the cocoa bean. We use meticulous artisan production methods and ingredients to ensure our chocolate is always the very highest quality. Many of our chocolates continue to be handmade and finished. This uncompromising commitment to the traditional art of fine chocolate making has been recognised over many years with a string of Championship Awards at the Royal Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide shows.
We now have over 250 varieties of chocolates to choose from with our team of confectioners creating a number of new recipes each year to offer our customers a diverse selection of the most delicious chocolates.
