NEWS: Starbucks Challenge: No Organic Milk
Wandered over to the Starbucks across the road from where I work yesterday (123A Kings Road, London, England SW3 4PL, United Kingdom - store 10731) to order a cup of Fairtrade (which they had brewing - hurrah) and asked if they had organic milk for my coffee as per my Monday post.
The barista did not understand (?) and offered me Soya milk instead. When I said no thanks I mean Organic she said something in a foreign language, shook her head and smiled.
Despite the obvious language concerns there in terms of effective customer service capabilities in an English shop I do not think Starbucks offer organic milk and I have certainly noticed it in the past anyway. And that is sooooo the kind of thing I would have noticed.
But a source at DEFRA's Food & Drink (Milk & Milk Products) Division (amazed they have one to be honest) confirmed that rBGH is not allowed in EU production. So any non-Organic milk in the EU is pus free! Hurrah! and phew!
