FEHD orders restaurant in Tai Po to suspend business for 21 days
     ​The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a restaurant in Tai Po to suspend business for 21 days, as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by extending the business area illegally.
     The restaurant, located at Shop 35 and 36 on the ground floor of Tai Wo Centre, 15 Tai Po Tai Wo Road, was ordered to suspend business from today (November 29) to December 19.
     "Four convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the restaurant this April and August, with a total fine of $13,000 levied by the court. Sixty demerit points were also registered against the licensee under the department's demerit points system, resulting in a seven-day and a 14-day business suspensions to be executed consecutively," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.
     The spokesman reminded the licensees of food premises to comply with the FBR and other relevant regulations, 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).
