Israeli settlement products must be clearly labelled, rules European court

The European Union's top court has ruled in favour of clearly labelling products made in Israeli settlements as having been produced in the occupied West Bank, an announcement that could have wide-reaching implications.

The ruling, which the European Court of Justice (ECJ) delivered on Tuesday morning, clarifies labelling rules for Israeli settlement products sold in France specifically.

"Foodstuffs originating in the territories occupied by the State of Israel must bear the indication of their territory of origin, accompanied, where those foodstuffs come from an Israeli settlement within that territory, by the indication of that provenance," the ECJ said in a statement - adding that such labelling would allow consumers to make choices based on "ethical considerations and considerations relating to the observance of international law".
