“Inspired by the creativity of Häagen-Dazs founding tastemakers who emigrated from Poland to the Bronx, we are continuing our work to uplift new voices and showcase diverse creators,” said Elizabell Marquez, chief marketing officer at Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream, Oakland, Calif., which owns the Häagen-Dazs brand.
Founded in 1960, Häagen-Dazs’ products include ice cream tubs, bars, sorbet, alcohol-infused ice cream and vegan and gluten free ice cream.
