Forever Milky

Michael Strauss, Eyal Dror, CEO of Strauss Israel, and Eli Itzkin, CEO Strauss Dairies, met at the opening of the Forever Milky Complex in the Sarona Market in Tel Aviv, which was created to mark the 40th anniversary of the best-known chocolate pudding brand in Israel, at a cost of NIS 1 million.


As part of the Chelsea Football Club’s international campaign against antisemitism, which began more than a year ago with the support of owner Roman Abramovich, the group’s players are taking part in the March of the Living to the death camps, and are participating in the ongoing virtual campaign #SayNoToAntisemitism. Recently, the Chelsea Football Club Women players met with Susan Pollack, an 88-year-old British Holocaust survivor, who is very active in Holocaust awareness. For years, Pollack has been visiting schools across Britain and telling students about the horrors inflicted on millions of people by the Nazis.
