The company sees this move as aligning with the principles of ethical consumerism, emphasising its commitment to social responsibility. Africa4Palestine expressed appreciation for Woolworths’ responsiveness and called off the #BoycottWoolworths campaign, encouraging other companies to follow Woolworths’ example, as reported by IOL.

This decision comes amid political calls, notably from EFF leader Julius Malema, urging the removal of Israeli products from Woolworths shelves. In response, Woolworths emphasised its non-partisan stance, highlighting its preference for local sourcing while clearly labelling the country of origin on products.
