FEHD orders Kwun Tong food factory to suspend business for 14 days
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a food factory 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 and operating an unlicensed restaurant.
     The premises, located at Shop 43A on the ground floor of Legend Tower at 7 Shing Yip Street, Kwun Tong, was ordered to suspend business from today (December 24) to January 6, 2021.
     "In November last year and September this year, two convictions for the above-mentioned breaches were recorded against the shop. A total fine of $9,000 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 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 operating an unlicensed restaurant in August and September last year. A total fine of $6,000 was levied and 15 demerit points were also registered. The breaches led to a licence suspension for seven days between January and 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).
