Letters For Taiwan

Response from Starbucks Coffee Company

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Leo,

Thank you for your comment! Taiwan was previously labeled “Taiwan, Province of China” on the store locator system on Starbucks.com in deference to International naming conventions. Because Starbucks takes no position on political issues, the system has been adjusted and the store locator is now labeled “Taiwan.”

Dear Sir or Madam:
I have always been a great admirer of Starbucks.  Its spectacular success in business.  Entrepreneurial aptitude.  Classy yet homey approach.  And above all, its uncompromising attitude in pursuing a high ethical standard such as serving environmentally friendly coffee.

President Ma Ying-jeou has come under heavy fire for his government's slow response after the monster typhoon slammed into Taiwan Aug. 7-9 last year, and triggered massive floodwaters and landslides that buried native peoples alive and isolated their villages in the south.
