Luxembourg chain pulls out of Israeli settlement products

01-09-2015 15:08




Luxembourg's largest supermarket chain, Cactus, had decided to halt the sale of Israeli settlement products until its supplier finds proof that its origin is not the West Bank, Ynetnews reported Sunday.

The chain's management caved in to pressure by the pro-Palestinian organization Comité pour une Paix Juste au Proche-Orient, which held noisy demonstrations at the chain's stores, claiming that they sold products from settlements.

The protests continued for months, until managers acquiesced and wrote to the group that it was suspending the sale of Israeli produce.

The chain's management said income from Israeli produce is minimal.

Israel's honorary consul in Luxembourg, Daniel Schneider, has begun an attempt to convince the management to reserve its decision.
