Over the past ten years, the company has donated more than $1 million to honey bee research, educated consumers around pollinator issues, and worked with suppliers to adopt pollinator-friendly farming practices.

"The brand’s work with suppliers includes creating year-round habitat. In 2017, Häagen-Dazs installed one of the country’s largest, privately funded pollinator habitats on an almond farm in California’s Central Valley. The habitat spans 6.5 miles of hedgerow and 28 acres of understory habitat with native drought-tolerant shrubs and flowering plants that are attractive to pollinators. In total, the project impacts 840 acres of farmland."
