Starbucks Says Report on Plant-Based Milk Upcharges Is False
(Bloomberg) -- Starbucks Corp. said a media report on Thursday that the company is doing away with plant-based milk upcharges is fake.
An earlier story from Business Insider was based on a statement from a website that is not associated with the Seattle-based company, spokeswoman Erin Shane Riley said in an email. The publication later corrected the story.
The erroneous report said that the coffee-shop operator would stop adding an extra charge for plant-based milks such as almond and oat in January.
