Ben & Jerry’s to continue business in Israel

Ben & Jerry's

Ben & Jerry’s parent company, Unilever has sold its business in Israel to a local licensee

The undisclosed deal will allow Ben & Jerry’s to be sold in Israel but will be distributed under its Arabic and Hebrew name.

Ben & Jerry’s is unhappy with the decision as it says it goes against its social justice values and support for Palestine.

The business was sold to Avi Zinger who owns American Quality Products.

It comes after the ice cream company last year announced it will no longer market their products in Israeli-occupied Palestinian regions.

Unilever, which does not support the BDS movement which aims to boycott, divest and sanction businesses that operate in Israel, have the final say on all operational and financial decisions. 

“Unilever rejects completely and repudiates unequivocally any form of discrimination or intolerance. Antisemitism has no place in any society. We have never expressed any support for the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement and have no intention of changing that position.”

Israel’s foreign minister Yair Lapid says it’s “a shameful capitulation to antisemitism”.

Ben & Jerry’s is firm on their opinion and say they will not do business in illegal settlements.

The company says that without its recognised social justice values, “it’s just a pint of ice cream”.

Disney trumps DeSantis with legal loophole

Published

on

Disney has outplayed Ron DeSantis by leaning on a decades-old royal clause

In February, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis moved to take over Disney World’s governing body.

It was all in retaliation to the company’s public stance against the state’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

But now, new reports suggest this whole plan may have backfired.

Members of the new governor-appointed board argue the previous members stripped the board of its power before they left.

It was all part of an agreement, which was approved a day before DeSantis assumed more control of the land around Disney’s theme park.

Disney is leaning on a property law which essentially makes the company the government of the area.

New board member Ron Peri says the board has lost the majority of its ability to do anything beyond maintain the roads and basic infrastructure.

For just under six decades, Disney has operated its expansive theme park and resort in Florida under a specially designated district.

A board oversaw the area and had free reign of development processes.

Disney also had the authority to appoint district board members.

But this special status came under threat when Disney clashed with DeSantis and his “Don’t Say Gay” law.

Florida lawmakers the passed a bill in February to end Disney’s self-governing status and give the governor the authority to appoint new board members to the district.

DeSantis appointed five supervisors, including a parents’ rights activist and three Republican donors.

But the new supervisors say previous board members entered an agreement before they left their positions – effectively stripping them of any powers. #trending #featured
