UDEA, a wholesaler which also operates some 60 EKOPLAZA organic food stores in the Netherlands, boycotts produce from Israeli settlements.
The Dutch Palestinian solidarity group docP reports that one of its contacts corresponded with UDEA on the question of Israeli settlement products in EKOPLAZA stores. UDEA wrote her that ” while EKOPLAZA does have a limited assortment of Israeli products, its policy is not to stock products from the Occupied Palestinian Territories. For this it requires written agreements with its suppliers.”
EKOPLAZA later confirmed this in writing to docP that “The response we gave to our customer is indeed correct and we continue to carry this out. In this question we work in conformity with EU legislation.”
