FEHD orders Yuen Long fresh provision shop to suspend business for 14 days
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a fresh provision shop in Yuen Long to suspend business for 14 days as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by extending the business area illegally.

     The shop, located on the ground floor of Foo Choy House at No. 2 Hop Choi Street, Yuen Long, was ordered to suspend business from today (September 19) to October 2.

     "In July this year, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the shop. A total fine of $6,000 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 licence suspension," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.

     The licensee of the shop had a record of two convictions for the same offence in September and October last year. Then, a total fine of $6,000 was levied and 30 demerit points were also registered. The breaches led to a licence suspension for seven days in February this year.

     The spokesman reminded the 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 (www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/index.html).
