Response from Starbucks Coffee Company - Case # 7098249

E-mail Print PDF

Hello Leo,
 
Thank you so much for taking the time to write to us.
 
As you mentioned in your email, Taiwan was previously labeled "Taiwan, Province of China" on the store locator system on Starbucks.com in deference to International naming conventions. Starbucks prefers not to take a position on political issues, however the system has been adjusted and the store locator is now labeled "Taiwan."  We apologize for any frustration this may have caused you.
 
If you have any further questions or concerns that I was unable to address, please feel free to let me know. 
 
Thanks again,
 
Madeline A.
Customer Relations
Starbucks Coffee Company
800 23-LATTE (235-2883)
Monday through Friday, 5AM to 6PM (PST)
 
 
p.s. I'd really like to know how my response met your needs; click here if you'd be willing to share your thoughts in a brief survey.

Newsflash

US policy on Taiwan under US President Barack Obama has taken a “hazardous” turn that appears to be moving toward support for Beijing’s interpretation of its core interests, the US-Taiwan Business Council said in a special commentary released on Monday.

The Obama administration appears to be “telegraphing its willingness to moderate legacy Taiwan support and cede more control to China in the dynamics and direction of cross-strait affairs,” said the report, titled The American Defense Commitment to Taiwan Continues to Deteriorate.
