The Ben & Jerry’s ice cream giant announces it will no longer distribute its products in the “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” though the flavors will remain available in Israel.
“We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). We also hear and recognize the concerns shared with us by our fans and trusted partners.
