Kof-K Statement Regarding Ben & Jerry’s

Although Ben & Jerry’s and its parent company Unilever announced that they will not be leaving Israel, the  KOF-K is quite concerned about Ben & Jerry’s decision not to sell to Yehuda and Shomron as of January 1, 2023. Unilever has committed that the company will adhere to their contract. The KOF-K has been in contact with the Israeli Government and the Yesha Council  to determine the most effective way to respond. Based on the advice of the Yesha council the KOF-K will continue to fulfill its contractual obligations to Ben & Jerry’s while using its influence to make sure that this anti-Israel policy never becomes implemented.  The KOF-K has expressed to Unilever and Ben & Jerry’s CEOs the negative repercussions of this policy.    

We encourage everyone to advocate on behalf of Israel. Please address your concerns about this policy directly to Unilever and Ben & Jerry’s. This is a highly volatile situation and the KOF-K remains in contact with the Israeli government and the Yesha Council as the most prudent way to make sure the policy never becomes implemented.
