Galeria Kauthof: We do not get involved in politics.
Galeria Kaufhof, one of Germany's largest department store chains, has denied reports on Israel's Channel 10 that it has removed Israeli products from its shelves, in response to EU instructions to mark goods made in East Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Golan Heights.
Galeria Kaufhof head of corporate communications Gerd Koslowski said, "Our company has not removed any of those products from the shelves. We import the goods via European importers who are responsible for correct declaration. We do not get involved in politics with our assortment. Our core customer's demands set the standards for the products we sell."
