Dear Carl McCann,

We, the undersigned Palestinian civil society representatives, including farmers unions, agricultural organizations and popular committees, wish to express our deep concern at reports that Total Produce is considering purchasing Agrexco, an Israeli company complicit in Israel’s regime of occupation, colonization and apartheid.

BNC Statement


The Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), a Palestinian civil society coalition leading a global boycott Israel campaign, has urged Irish fresh produce company Total Produce not to purchase ailing Israeli exporter Agrexco.

In a letter to Total Produce published today, the coalition details “Agrexco’s complicity with Israeli war crimes and illegal activities in the colonial settlements built on occupied Palestinian land”.

Partly-owned by the Israeli government, Agrexco is responsible for the export of 60-70% of the agricultural produce grown in Israel
