Starbucks Sued Over Coffee-Flavored Lip Balm

We call your attention to the case of Balmuccino LLC v. Starbucks Corp, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, No. 2:22-cv-01501:

“Starbucks Corp stole a Los Angeles company’s confidential information about plans for a coffee-flavored lip balm to create its S’Mores Frappucino lip-gloss kit, according to a lawsuit filed in Seattle federal court.”

— “Starbucks sued again over Frappucino lip-gloss trade secrets,” Blake Brittain, Reuters {link added]


“Lawsuit claims Starbucks stole secrets for coffee-flavored lip balms,” Quratulain Tejani, NY Post
