Major Israeli exporter reports cancelled orders due to Israeli massacre in Gaza
In a sign that the Israeli economy may face serious consequences in the wake of its ongoing massacre of Israel, a major Israeli export company has revealed that a large export deal has collapsed as result of Israel’s current attack on Gaza.
Fruit juice producer Priniv told The Marker (Hebrew) that a deal to export fresh fruit juices to Sweden worth has been called off after they refused to export the produce in a way that would make it easier to conceal the fact it was produced in Israel. Customers in Belgium and France have also made similar requests. Priniv director Ido Yaniv attributed the drop in sales to Israel’s ongoing attack in Gaza.
Yaniv predicted that the company will lose orders worth NIS 1.5m as a result of Israel’s ongoing massacre in Gaza.
There is mounting evidence of a growing “silent boycott” against Israel by European businesses fearful of being associated with its brutal regime of colonialism and apartheid.
In February, one Dutch and one Italian company both pulled out of the bidding to construct new port facilities in Israel over fears about “political repercussions”, according to Haaretz.
Activists in the Jordan Valley area of the occupied Palestinian West Bank have reported that Palestinian farmers have been contacted by European retailers wishing to confirm that they are Palestinian rather than Israeli.
