Some questions are just too good not to ask them. On this page you will find answers to the questions we are asked most often.
The safety of our Associates, vendors and partners is our number one priority. We adhere to the highest international food and quality standards, and all of our factories around the world are Food Safety System Certified (FSSC 22000). In order to maintain safety in our production and protect all stakeholders, including any potential visitors, we do not offer factory tours at this time. If you'd like to see how we make our gummies, please visit the Production section on our website.
Our Goldbear costume is used exclusively for HARIBO activities at events, advertising films, etc. and, unfortunately, cannot be lent to third parties.
HARIBO believes deeply in giving back to the places where we live and work, and we partner with a number of organizations to help inspire moments of childlike happiness through our sweet treats. We receive many requests for support of very worthy causes and events, but due to our resources and capacity we cannot participate in further projects at this time.
Unfortantely we are unable to produce custom-made products at this time. Requests such as these would slow down our ability to bring childlike happiness through our everyday products that you love so much! We kindly ask for your understanding.
Established in 1920 by Hans Riegel, HARIBO is the acronym that comprises our founder's name and the city in which the company was born (Bonn, Germany): HAns RIegel BOnn.
Due to different regulatory requirements, it's not possible to purchase HARIBO products from other countries. If the product you're interested in is not included in the Products section of our website, that means it's not currently available in the United States.
HARIBO products are available at retailers throughout the U.S. and online. If you have questions about where to find HARIBO in your area, please contact our Consumer Care team and we’ll be glad to help you.
Corporate Social Responsibility
At HARIBO, we have a 100 year legacy of inspiring moments of childlike happiness through our treats. We take a holistic approach to being good corporate citizens, inclusive of our Associates, customers, consumers and the environment in which we all live and work. A key part of our sustainability strategy is reducing our CO2 emissions. We pursue this in a variety of ways including energy management, reduced packaging, modern production facilities and optimization of our logistics. We're continuing to work with our community partners to achieve sustainable solutions and shape the future together.
HARIBO believes deeply in giving back the places where we live and work. We believe everyone should have access to quality, afforable education and we partner with a number of colleges in the Midwest to help in that effort. We also focus on helping children and young adults have safe spaces to learn and play and we are a proud partner of the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha.
Since we established our business in 1920, high-quality sugar has been a key component of our products as it helps maintain their unmistakable shape and contributes to the enjoyable taste experience. HARIBO's mission is to inspire moments of childlike happiness through our sweet treats, and we believe they're just that, a treat. We all deserve to treat ourselves and sugar in moderation has a place on our plate. We offer a variety of pack types and sizes, including mini bags, which help encourage healthy portion control.
HARIBO pays special attention to its packaging. Food packaging needs to protect its contents from contamination and maintain freshness and shelf life, as required by quality and food safety regulations. As of now, 90% of all HARIBO product packaging can be recycled, which has been certified by the renowned cyclos-HTP testing institute.
HARIBO’s ZING Sour Streamers and ZING Sour S’ghetti are both vegetarian options.
Unfortunately, because we use ingredients containing wheat in some HARIBO products, we cannot rule out entirely the possibility that our products or the ingredients used to produce them have come into contact with products containing gluten. Our products may therefore contain traces of gluten. Please always consult the ingredients list on the product packaging. Allergens that are subject to allergen labelling guidelines appear in bold in the ingredients list.
Unfortunately, because we use dairy as an ingredient in some HARIBO products, we cannot rule out entirely the possibility that our products or the ingredients used to produce them have come into contact with products containing dairy. Our products may therefore contain traces of dairy (including lactose). Please always consult the ingredients list on the product packaging. Allergens that are subject to allergen labelling guidelines appear in bold in the ingredients list.
In the U.S., we don’t sell bags of one specific flavor of Goldbears or any of our other gummies. We know that the variety of flavors and colors are two of the things that make HARIBO the favorite of fans around the world! We’re really sorry if you’re a fan who prefers a specific flavor or color, but at least that gives you an extra reason to share your HARIBO which is one thing that makes it so fun!
The green Goldbear is Strawberry; the yellow Goldbear is Lemon; the orange Goldbear is Orange; the red Goldbear is Raspberry; and the translucent Goldbear is Pineapple.
We're happy to offer a kosher line of HARIBO products sold exclusively through our parnter, Paskesz. Our special line of kosher products are made in Austria and are clearly marked as certified kosher on the front and back of each pack.
HARIBO products are made in peanut/tree nut-free facilities and therefore do not contain peanuts or tree nuts. In addition, our manufacturing facilities and our ingredient suppliers have robust cleaning procedures and allergen controls in place to prevent any cross-contamination of other ingredients.
Please contact us for more detailed questions about other allergens or sensitivities.
We recommend that our products are stored in room temperature conditions, between 55F – 77F to ensure quality remains intact. Please note that if stored at higher temperatures especially for longer periods of time, our gummies may melt and lose the character shapes our fans love so much.
