New York Supermarkets Pull Ben & Jerry’s over Israel Boycott
Ben & Jerry’s ice cream is being pulled from the shelves of several supermarket chains in New York since the company announced its plans to boycott Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria and East Jerusalem, according to a report.
Seasons, an upscale kosher supermarket chain located in New York and New Jersey, sent a message to customers Monday. They said, “Seasons has removed all Ben and Jerry’s products from all its stores as a result of the ice cream maker’s decision to cease sales in parts of Israel.”
According to the New York Post, Morton Williams Supermarkets’ board of directors met Monday evening to discuss and agree to “reduce the Ben & Jerry’s products it sells in its 16 stores by 70 percent.” The board also agreed to stop promoting the ice cream company in the weekly circulars. “You’ll be able to find the product, but you’ll have to look for it,” Kaner said.
