FEHD cancels licence of fresh provision shop in North Point

     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene cancelled the licence of a fresh provision shop in North Point today (June 17) as the licensee has breached a licensing condition by selling chilled beef as fresh beef. The shop concerned has been told to cease operation with immediate effect.

     The fresh provision shop is located on the ground floor and upper ground floor at 12 Tong Shui Road.

     A spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said, "The FEHD will not tolerate the sale of chilled or frozen meat/poultry as fresh meat/poultry in fresh provision shops. Suspected cases will be promptly investigated with enforcement actions taken where appropriate. Those breaching the relevant licensing condition are liable to immediate cancellation of the licence concerned."

     People should call 1823 or the FEHD's hotline at 2868 0000 to report such irregularities, or when they have doubts about meat and poultry being sold at retail outlets.

     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 (
