West Bank settler wines 'not made in Israel' Canadian federal court rules

(Worthy News) - Wines produced by West Bank settlers cannot be labeled “Products of Israel,” Canada’s Federal Court ruled on Monday.

“All of the parties and interveners agree that the settlements... in this case are not part of the State of Israel. Consequently, labeling the settlement wines as ‘Products of Israel’ is both inaccurate and misleading,” the court said in its judgment. “Canadian federal legislation requires that food products [including wines] that are sold in Canada bear truthful, non-deceptive and non-misleading country of origin labels,” it said.

The court explained that labeling the wines produced in Judea and Samaria as “Products of Israel” contravenes both subsection 7(1) of the Consumer Packaging and Labeling Act and subsection 5(1) of the Food and Drugs Act [129], and was therefore not defensible under Canadian law. It added that the initial decision by the Complaints and Appeals Office of Canada’s Food Inspection Agency, which allowed those wines to be labeled “Products of Israel,” was unreasonable.
