FEHD orders Kowloon City siu mei and lo mei shop to suspend business for 14 days

     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a siu mei and lo mei shop in Kowloon City to suspend business for 14 days as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by storing open food improperly on the premises.

     The premises, located at stalls No. 75 and 80 on the ground floor of Homantin Market in Homantin Plaza at Fat Kwong Street, were ordered to suspend business from today (March 22) to April 4.

     "In October last year and January this year, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the food establishment. A total fine of $2,500 was levied by the court and 15 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 2014 and August 2015 respectively. A total fine of $4,600 was levied and 15 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven days in December last 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 (
