FEHD orders Kwun Tong fresh provision shop to suspend business for 14 days
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a fresh provision shop in Kwun Tong 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 (rear portion) at 86 Shui Wo Street, Kwun Tong, was ordered to suspend business from today (June 14) to June 27.
     "In October and November 2018, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the shop. A total fine of $2,000 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 October 2018. A total fine of $2,000 was levied and 30 demerit points were also registered. The breaches led to a licence suspension for seven days in December 2018.
     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).
