ARLA faces new boycot - this time in Denmark
"Danish women organisations are angry with ARLA, as the dairy company in an ad in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf States distances itself from JyllandsPosten's Muhammed cartoons expressing respect of Islamic values:" .. the years, we have spend in your world has taught us that justice and tolerance are fundamental values in Islam".
The chairman of the organisation Women and Freedom, Vibeke Manniche calls it "shamefull" and "an outrage on women all over the world", that ARLA markets this way. ARLA forgets what is seen as women's often troubled conditions in especially Saudi Arabia, she says."
The women organisations published a list of alternative products to replace those of ARLA's.
