Ben & Jerry’s current Israel distributor condemns the ice cream company’s decision to end sales in “Occupied Palestinian Territory” and drop its licensing agreement with them.
“The decision is entirely unacceptable. Ben & Jerry’s international decided not to renew their agreement with us in a year and a half after we refused their demand to stop distribution throughout Israel,” it says. “We urge the Israeli government and consumers — don’t let them boycott Israel.”
“Keep ice cream out of politics,” it adds.
The distributor also urges Israelis to buy locally produced ice cream.
