FEHD orders Tuen Mun food factory to suspend business for 14 days

     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a food factory in Tuen Mun to suspend business for 14 days as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by illegally extending the food business area.

     The premises, located at shop 11 on the ground floor of Glorious Garden at No. 45 Lung Mun Road, was ordered to suspend business from today (December 20) to January 2, 2015.

     "In September this year, two convictions for the breach were recorded against the food establishment. A total fine of $4,000 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," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.

     The licensee of the food premises had a record of two convictions for the same offence in August this year. A total fine of $7,000 was levied and 30 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven days in October this year.

     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, at a conspicuous place near the main entrance, indicating that the premises have been licensed. A list of licensed food premises is available on the FEHD's website (
