FEHD orders Chai Wan food factory to suspend business for 14 days
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a food factory in Chai Wan to suspend business for 14 days as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by operating an unlicensed restaurant and extending the business area illegally.
     The premises, located at Shop No. 420 on the ground floor of Lok Hin Terrace, 350 Chai Wan Road, was ordered to suspend business from today (October 26) to November 8.
     "During this May and August, two convictions for the above-mentioned breaches were recorded against the shop. A total fine of $11,200 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 has a record of two convictions for extending the business area illegally in July and November last year. A total fine of $5,500 was levied and 30 demerit points were also registered. The breaches led to a licence suspension for a total of seven days in this January.
     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).
