FEHD cancels licence of Tsuen Wan food factory

     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene cancelled the licence of a food factory in Tsuen Wan today (September 29).

     The operator of the food factory, located at portion C of shop 4 on the ground floor of On Foo Building at No. 31 Tsuen Hing Path, repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation by illegally extending the business area.

     "In September last year and March this year, two convictions for the breach were recorded against the food establishment," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.

     "A total fine of $1,550 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 cancellation of the licence," he added.

     The licensee of the food premises had a record of four convictions for illegally extending the food business area and allowing staff to prepare open food on the pavement in front of the food premises between May and September last year. A total fine of $2,950 was levied and 45 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven and 10 days last September and this July respectively.

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

     Licensed food premises are required to exhibit a sign indicating that the premises have been licensed at a conspicuous place near the main entrance. A list of licensed food premises is also available on the FEHD's website (
