FEHD cancels licence of a food factory in Cheung Sha Wan
********************************************************

     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene today (April 27) cancelled the licence of a food factory in Cheung Sha Wan, as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by illegally extending the business area.

     The food factory is located at shop 3A on the ground floor of Sun Cheong Industrial Building at No. 2íV4 Cheung Yee Street.

     "Last August and this February, 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 $3,700 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 the same offence between June and August last year. A total fine of $6,400 was levied and 60 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven and 14 days in August and October last year respectively.

     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 FEHD's website (www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/licence-type.html).
