Baltimore, MD - June 9, 2016 - In response to the news that Starbucks is providing liquid Cholov Yisroel milk, half and half, and cream in some stores in New York and New Jersey, and the steady stream of consumer questions regarding this issue, please note the following.

  • Starbucks has approached the STAR-K to advise them as to how to achieve the highest possible level of consumer confidence in this program. Consumers are advised to check back with STAR-K as this process evolves.
  • STAR-K does not certify Starbucks.  As to what drinks consumers may feel comfortable drinking please see for a detailed list. We are working with Starbucks on expanding this list as much as possible. Check back for updates.
