Discriminatory labeling of Israeli products in France

The European Union announced that it would impose discriminatory and illegal labeling requirements on goods imported from “disputed territories” in Israel, and that all its member states would be expected to comply. 

The Lawfare Project initiated a legal action challenging the prejudicial and politically motivated labelling requirements on behalf of Psâgot Winery LTD, an Israeli vineyard whose European distributors are subject to the burdensome labeling rules. Ultimately, our action will seek a ruling by the European Court of Justice, which would be applicable in all 28 EU Member States and thereby prohibit similar discriminatory commercial trade regulations throughout the EU.
