FEHD orders Yuen Long light refreshment restaurant to suspend business for 14 days

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

     The premises, located at shop 79 on the ground floor of Ho Shun Yee Building at No.9 Fung Yau Street East, were ordered to suspend business from today (February 18) to March 3.

     "In December 2013 and December last year, two convictions for the breach were recorded against the food establishment. A total fine of $5,400 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 April and May 2013. A total fine of $2,500 was levied and 30 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven days in August 2013.

     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 (
