Ministry: Pri Galil Owner Statement Misleading


The Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Labor responded, Sunday to the closure of the Pri Galil produce processing plant by saying, "We regret that the factory's management has chosen to exploit the plant's workers and their distress in order to receive public funds."

A statement by the ministry continued, "The company has the right to close a production line and transfer it to another factory, but the claim that the state failed to honor its obligations is a pure and simple deception, designed to squeeze a grant of 18 million shekels for a profitable enterprise that does not meet the criteria set out in the Investment Encouragement Law."
