Australia’s Kashrut Authority announced Wednesday it was removing Ben & Jerry’s products from its list of approved items in response to the ice cream company’s decision not to sell goods in Judea and Samaria after 2022.
“The brand will be removed from our list this weekend, in support of the proud residents of Judea and Samaria,” the company said in a statement, calling its decision “a small stance on a global scale,” but one it had to make.
Ben & Jerry’s products that carry the “KOF-K” kosher mark, granted by a US-based international certification provider, were not affected by the decision.
Pressure is also mounting on the Orthodox Union, the largest kashrut organization in the world, to apply pressure on the ice cream conglomerate to reverse its decision.
