SodaStream Closing West Bank Factory After Boycotts

Updated on

SodaStream International Ltd. will close a factory in a West Bank settlement that had prompted calls by pro-Palestinian activists for consumers to boycott the Israeli company’s soda machines.

The plant in the industrial zone of Mishor Adumim will shut after the company opted to relocate its operations at that site and another in northern Israel by late 2015. The decision is “purely commercial” and forms part of a “global growth plan” being initiated by Lod, Israel-based SodaStream, spokeswoman Nirit Hurwitz said today by e-mail.
