"Menu labelling is yet another step to extend our long-standing commitment to ensuring our customers across Canada have the information they need to make informed decisions," said Rossann Williams, president Starbucks® Canada. "Every day, our Baristas support our customers' individual preferences by helping them understand all the ways that they can customize their beverages, there are over 170,000 possible customizations that can be made to Starbucks® beverages!"
Providing the Right Offerings
Starbucks® dedication to this commitment is illustrated through the many steps in the company's journey to becoming a place to find varied options to accommodate nutrition and taste preferences.
Listening to customer and partner feedback and bringing relevant options with real, natural ingredients, in moderate portion sizes and sensible calorie amounts have been a core part of Starbucks® approach to food and beverages. A few of the steps Starbucks has taken include:
Starbucks will post calorie counts to accompany each beverage listed on the menu boards, as well as on tags to accompany food in the pastry case. Each beverage is listed as a standard recipe, though each is fully customizable, such as ordering without whip cream, choosing a different milk or dairy-substitute, or sugar-free syrup option. Customers can expect to see the new menu boards in all stores in Canada beginning September 29, 2016 and pastry case labels November 2, 2016.
