"In line with the FSSAI guidelines, while we finalise the documentation necessary to complete these applications, Tata Starbucks has initiated the suspension of applicable ingredients from certain products served in our India stores," the company informed in a statement.

"At the same time, we have initiated our plans for using other FSSAI-approved ingredients that meet Starbucks global standards and enable us to continue offering our range of beverages,” the statement said.

"These actions ensure that we are able to continue delivering the unique Starbucks experience to our customers without disruption," the company said.

The company stated although it was suspending the use of some of the imported globally standardised ingredients in India, these are considered to be safe and meet the safety standards in over 65 countries where it operates.
