Home Letters for Taiwan Starbuck's Undermining of Taiwan's Sovereignty Response from Starbucks Coffee Company - Case # 7097430

Response from Starbucks Coffee Company - Case # 7097430

E-mail Print PDF

Hello,
 
Thank you so much for taking the time to write to us.
 
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."
 
If you have any further questions or concerns that I was unable to address, please feel free to let me know. 
 
Thanks again,
 
Allison F.
Customer Relations

Monday through Friday, 5AM to 6PM (PST)

Newsflash

World Uyghur Congress president Rebiya Kadeer said on Thursday in Washington that Taiwan and Turkey were the only countries in the world denying her a visitor’s visa, but added that she still hoped to visit Taiwan in the future.

The Uighur rights activist made the comments in her meeting with visiting Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU) Chairman Huang Kun-huei (黃昆輝), who promised to demand that the administration of President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) grant her a visa.
