Statement on Unilever’s Decision to Allow Sales of Ben & Jerry’s Products in Israel and the West Bank

TRENTON, NJ – The New Jersey-Israel Commission commends Unilever, with its United States headquarters in New Jersey, for reaching an agreement to allow Ben & Jerry’s products to be sold again in Israel and the West Bank. We applaud this thoughtful approach and reaffirm our strong opposition to any effort that would delegitimize, unfairly single out, or boycott the State of Israel.
