Tesco Sets Up Anti-Israel Call Centre

by | 8th, April 2009

TESCO’S is pandering to the bigots?

Pro-Israel groups have attacked Tesco for setting up a customer helpline for those considering boycotting Israeli goods. Tesco says it provided the service in expectation of calls questioning its stocking of products from Israel and the West Bank.

Callers selecting the general information option on its customer helpline hear the recorded message: “If you are ringing regarding Israeli goods, please press one.” They are then connected to specially-trained call centre staff.

Tesco does not offer a similar service regarding products from elsewhere.
