SodaStream to Close Factory in Occupied West Bank
Amid International Boycott Pressure SodaStream Announces 2015 Closure of Settlement Shop
For several years, Pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) activists in Northern California and across the globe have pressured retailers to stop selling SodaStream products in their stores. This is because Israeli beverage firm SodaStream produces many of the products it sells worldwide at a factory in the Mishor Adumim settlement in the occupied West Bank.

On October 29, amid ongoing boycott pressure from the international community, SodaStream announced that it was closing their controversial factory located in the West Bank settlement, while simultaneously reporting a 9% decline in sales.

SodaStream said that it would relocate the factory by the end of 2015. According to the firm, the plant closure would "improve the operational efficiency" of the company, listed on the New York stock exchange since 2010.
