Letter of thanks to Italian grocery chain Coop Italia for not selling settlement produce

Following lobbying efforts by the Italian Coalition Against Carmel-Agrexco - created in the fall of 2009 and which fully endorses the Palestinian BDS call, together with a growing number of Italian and international organizations - two major Italian supermarket chains, COOP and Nordiconad, since they could not recognized which products were rom the settlement in the occupied territories, announced the suspension of sales of products from Agrexco, the principal exporter of produce from Israel and the illegal Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. 

Following the letter I sent to marketing direction of Coop and Nordiconad to express gratitude for their decision. 

Best regards,
