An extract from the Profundo report (p.5)

A total of 27 Israeli companies operating in settlements and exporting to the United Kingdom  have been identified:

•  Fruit, vegetables and fresh herbs: Agrexco, Arava, Flowers Direct, Hadiklaim, Mehadrin  Tnuport Export

•  Other food products: Abady Bakery, Achdut, Adumim Food Additives/Frutarom, Amnon  & Tamar, Oppenheimer, Shamir Salads

•  Beverages: Adanim Tea, Soda-Club, Tishbi Estate Winery

•  Cosmetics: Dead Sea Laboratories, Intercosma

•  Pharmaceuticals: Fermentek

•  Plastic products: Keter Plastic, Tip Top Toys, Twitoplast  •  Metal products: DiSTeK, Mul-T-Lock, Yardeni Locks  •  Textile products: Caesarea Carpets, Dispobud, Ofertex

Fruit and vegetables exported by these settlement companies  are sold by major UK high street retailers, such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and  Somerfield. Other products exported by settlement companies are sold by well-known British  retail chains, such as Marks & Spencer (M&S), John Lewis and B&Q…
