Canadian Court Nixes Ban on ‘Product of Israel’ Labels for Wine from Judea, Samaria

May 6, 2021 from The Jewish Press:

"A Canadian federal appeals court reversed a lower court’s decision that barred 'Product of Israel' labels for wines produced in Judea and Samaria."

"In July of 2020, the Federal Court of Canada had ruled that it was “false, misleading or deceptive” for wines produced by Israeli vintners east of the Green Line to be labeled 'Product of Israel.' Parts of the decision had also lent support to boycotts of Jewish communities, suggesting that the 'Product of Israel' obstructed consumers’ right to boycott these communities."

"However, the Federal Court of Appeal reversed this decision, ruling that the lower court judge had gone too far in its decision and that the federal agency, Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), that initially reviewed the labels should be allowed to try again, with all options remaining open."
