Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen drops by a Los Angeles branch of the 85C Bakery Café, where she received a "gift" from employees. 

Products from a Taiwan bakery chain have become unavailable on major online food delivery platforms on China’s mainland.

Earlier this week, Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen dropped by a Los Angeles branch of the 85C Bakery Café this week, where she received a "gift" from employees. 

The company later released a statement on Wednesday declaring its "firm support for 'one China'" and referred to Tsai merely as "leader of the Taiwan authority."

It said the gift was just a personal gesture.

The company "opposes any behavior and remarks that divide the feelings of the compatriots of the two sides, and we will serve customers under the belief that the two sides are the same family," according to the statement.

The official website of the company, www.85cafe.com, is now inaccessible, with a page saying it is “under construction.”

85C Bakery Café has more than 500 outlets on China’s mainland, media reports said earlier.
