How is Haigh's pronounced here?

Haigh's Chocolates

I looked up Haigh in the Longman Pronunciation Dictionary, and I found two entries:

Haigh (placename) /heɪ/
Haigh (family name) /heɪg/

So based on this, it seems like Haigh's could be either /heɪz/ or /heɪgz/, but I'm not sure. It seems to be an Australian brand, and I've never heard anyone say it before.

Could anyone tell me how Haigh's is pronounced in this context?

    I guess the easy answer would be to call them up and see how they pronounce it...

It's the founder's name Alfred Haigh and is pronounced /heig/, which you may check up on YouTube typing Alfred Haigh in the search box.
