“These actions ensure that we are able to continue delivering the unique Starbucks Experience to our customers without disruption,” it said.

“It is important for me to emphasise that all of the imported globally standardized ingredients we serve in India, including those we are suspending, are safe and meet the safety standards in over 65 countries where Starbucks operates. All of these imported ingredients received the then applicable product testing and safety authorizations when they were imported into India,” Davda said in the note.
