FEHD orders Kwun Tong restaurant to suspend business for two weeks

     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a restaurant in Kwun Tong to suspend business for 14 days.

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

     The restaurant, located on the ground floor at 14 Ting Yue Square in Ngau Tau Kok, was ordered to suspend business from today (February 26) to March 11.

     "In August last year and this January, two convictions for the breach were recorded against the food establishment," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department said.

     "A total fine of $7,000 was levied by the court and 30 demerit points were registered against the licensee under the department's demerit points system. The contraventions resulted in the 14-day business suspension," he added.

     The licensee of the food premises had a record of two convictions for the same offence in July 2011 and last January. A total fine of $4,500 was levied and 30 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven days in April last year.

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