Israeli Wine From Settlements Must Be Labelled, Canada Court Rules

July 30, 2019

A court in Canada ruled on Monday that Israeli wine from settlements must be marked, saying that labelling such products as "made in Israel" is misleading to people who wish to boycott settlement products for political reasons. The petition was filed by activists against the authority in charge of regulating food imports into Canada. The court, acting as the court of first instance on the case, ruled that the office must find an alternative wording for the labelling of products from settlements.
