FEHD orders Tuen Mun food factory to suspend business for three weeks

     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a food factory in Tuen Mun to suspend business for 21 days.

     The operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation by illegally extending the food business area.

     The food factory, located at Shop 156-157 on the ground floor of Yuet Wu Commercial Centre at Yuet Wu Villa, was ordered to suspend business from today (June 27) to July 17.

     "Four convictions for the breach were recorded against the food establishment in March and July last year," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department said.

     "A total fine of $5,200 was levied by the court and 90 demerit points were registered against the licensee under the department's demerit points system. The contraventions resulted in seven-day and 14-day business suspensions running consecutively," he added.

     The spokesman reminded licensees of food premises to comply with the Food Business Regulation, or their licences could be suspended or cancelled.
