FEHD orders food factory in Lai Chi Kok to suspend business for two weeks

     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a food factory in Lai Chi Kok to suspend business for 14 days.

     The operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by illegally extending the business area.

     The food factory, located at shop 3A on the ground floor of Sun Cheong Industrial Building at 2-4 Cheung Yee Street, was ordered to suspend business from today (October 24) to November 6.

     "In June and August 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 $3,300 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 June. A total fine of $3,100 was levied and 30 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven days in August.

     The spokesman reminded licensees of food premises to comply with the FBR 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 (
