– PT Nestlé Indonesia and its partner, PT Sari Coffee Indonesia (Starbucks Indonesia), have denied involvement in the importation of Starbucks products without a distribution permit, according to a statement from the director of Corporate Affairs, Sufintri Rahayu.

"In relation to reports of the seizure of Starbucks products without a distribution permit by the Food and Drug Administration (BPOM), we reiterate that these products were not imported by PT Nestlé Indonesia or PT Sari Coffee Indonesia," Rahayu said in the official statement.

Rahayu also emphasized that all products marketed in Indonesia by PT Nestlé Indonesia and PT Sari Coffee Indonesia are products with a distribution permit and have been approved by the BPOM.

"PT Nestlé Indonesia and PT Sari Coffee Indonesia are committed to making the quality, safety, and integrity of our products a top priority," Rahayu added.

On October 17, 2022, Nestlé Indonesia and Starbucks Indonesia announced the expansion of the Starbucks Coffee At Home and Starbucks Ready-To-Drink (RTD) product ranges in Indonesia. 

The Starbucks Frappuccino (280ml bottle) and Starbucks Doubleshot (220ml can) products from the Nestle-Starbucks collaboration have received attention from the public. These products can be found not only at Starbucks outlets, but also at minimarkets and other modern retailers.

Previously, the head of the BPOM, Penny Lukito, reported the seizure of imported Starbucks sachets from Turkey. "The seized Starbucks sachets originated from Turkey and were found in Banjarmasin without a distribution permit," Penny said in a press conference on Monday (26/12/2022). 

The products, which come in various flavors (Toffee Nut Latte, Cappuccino, White Mocha, Caramel Latte, Caffe Latte, and Vanilla Latte, each weighing 23 grams), were seized without a distribution permit in Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan.
