Gornitzky represented Osem Investments Ltd. in a motion to approve a class action filed against it.

Gornitzky represented Osem Investments Ltd. in a motion to approve a class action filed against it, for misleading consumers and breach of standardization regulations, with regard to the indication of ketchup products as containing ‘’only natural ingredients’’, when in fact they contain sugar – not a natural ingredient, as claimed by the petitioner.

The motion to approve the class action in the amount of NIS 1.7 billion was dismissed by the Honourable Judge Kienar, who accepted Osem’s argument that standardization differentiates between the indication of a product as “natural” and the indication of an ingredient as “natural”, and that sugar complies with standardization regulations in the sense that it is listed as a “natural ingredient”.

The company was represented by Partner Noam Ronen and Associate Shirin Gabbay-Metzger.
