Here are just 9 of some of the companies we all should be boycotting!

Boycotting the companies, organizations, and institutions that help legitimize the illegal conduct of Israel is one thing we can do to help keep the cause of Palestine alive.

By focusing our boycotts on a smaller amount of companies and products, we can still create a major impact. These are only just SOME of the products and companies that are complicit in violations of Palestinian rights, and specifically play a direct role in Israel’s crimes:

1. Israeli fruit and vegetables

Fruit and vegetables are one of Israel’s biggest exports and all Israeli exporters are complicit in Israel’s violations of international law as they operate on stolen Palestinian land.

2. Caterpillar

Caterpillar bulldozers are regularly used in the demolition of Palestinian homes and farms. They have also been used as a form of weaponry for Israel’s massacres in Gaza.

3. HP (Hewlett Packard)

Hewlett Packard helps run the ID system that Israel uses to restrict Palestinian movement.

4. Puma

Puma sponsors the Israel Football Association, which includes teams in Israel’s illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land.

5. Sabra

Sabra hummus is a joint venture between PepsiCo and the Strauss Group, an Israeli food company that provides financial support to the Israel Defense Forces.

6. Sodastream

Sodastream home drinks machines are one of Israel’s best known exports. To boycott Sodastream means to boycott one of Israel’s leading sources of export revenue.


HSBC has funded weapons and technology companies that sell to the Israeli state. HSBC has held £832 million in shares for companies supplying Israel with arms.

8. Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry’s has conducted business in Israel with a licensee partner since 1987. Its ice cream is sold by Shufersal supermarkets in Israeli settlements, which was listed by the UN as one of 112 companies profiting from Israel’s illegal activity and human rights violations.

9. Volvo Group (not cars)

The Volvo Group of Sweden supplies equipment used to bulldoze Palestinian homes. They hold a 27% stake in Merkavim, whose buses are used to transport Palestinian prisoners to and from Israeli jails as well.
