Prats of The Week - Sainsburys

Congratulations to a Sainsbury's store in Holborn, that thrust itself into the maelstrom of the Middle Eastern conflict on Saturday.

Fearing an attack by anti Israeli protesters, the store manager removed all the kosher products.
Colin Appleby, a customer was quoted by the Telegraph claiming that a staff member defended the decision, saying:
"We support Free Gaza."
All very well, maybe....except not all kosher products come from Israel; indeed many in that store were from Poland.

The removal of kosher products therefore does not target Israel, but targets people of the Jewish faith (who doubtless have a broad spectrum of views about what is happening in Gaza at the moment).

Were Sainsbury's to follow through on its own "logic" and "moral" stand, it would also presumably remove all Halal food as a protest against ISIS.

Suffice to say, once this nonsense appeared on Facebook, Sainsbury's backtracked and put the food back up on the shelves.

A spokesman for Sainsbury's said:
"It was an isolated decision made by in a very challenging situation. It was chilled food and he was simply trying to preserve it.

It was the manager's decision there and then – not company policy at all. A decision was taken by a store manager faced with a challenging situation outside the store.

  1. TESCO in Blackburn (Near where I work) had calls to remove all it's Israeli food. There was a protest outside and banners hung on derelict building overlooking the car park.

    They just said no. They said their food was clearly labelled and folk were free to make up their own mind.

    I like that :-)
