The human rights NGO Africa4Palestine welcomes the decision of Woolworths to not stock Israeli products.
In a formal letter received by Africa4Palestine, the CEO of Woolworths, Mr Roy Bagattini, has confirmed that Woolworths is no longer stocking Israeli products. He stated that there is currently not one single product on their shelves from Israel: “we do not have any products on our shelves that are for sale that have been imported from Israel.”
Not stocking products from Israel aligns with the principles of ethical consumerism. By not stocking Israeli products, a company demonstrates its commitment to being a socially responsible corporate citizen.
Our organisation’s communication with Woolworths was out of concern over allegations that Woolworths is supporting Israel. We wrote to the CEO as we felt it important to engage directly and we thank the company and him for their responsiveness.
