Boycott Watch (BW) was founded by Fred Taub, the organization's president, who also created Divestment Watch. [1]

Boycott Watch is a consumer advocacy organization and "an independent service that monitors boycott calls for accuracy and honesty," its website states. It does not "perform product comparisons or perform any product evaluations" and says that its job is "to make sure consumers are not tricked into believing lies."

Boycott Watch says that, through its consulting services, it works "with companies to help prevent boycotts before they happen", that its "investigations are independent and accurate", and that it does "bend for convenience."

No other information about BW is provided on its website.
