Claims product partly produced in occupied territories

Coop stops purchases of Soda Stream

The Swedish supermarket chain Coop has stopped the purchase of home carbonation machines from Soda Stream as it waits for an independent investigation of where and how the product is produced, reports Swedish news agency TT.

It was earlier revealed that parts of the home carbonation machines were produced in the occupied territories in the West Bank.

Coop says there were guaranteed that all production was done in China, but the investigation will, according to the company, settle the issue once and for all. The company will continue to sell the carbonation machines it has on its shelves.
