FEHD cancels licence of restaurant in Sheung Shui
Hong Kong (HKSAR) - The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene today (March 8) cancelled the licence of a restaurant in Sheung Shui, as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by illegally extending the business area.
The restaurant is located at Flat E, G/F, Sun Bo Building at San Kan Street, Shek Wu Hui, Sheung Shui
"In July and December last year, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the restaurant. A total fine of $20,000 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 cancellation of the licence," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.
The licensee of the food premises had a record of four convictions for the same offence last year.
A total fine of $40,000 was levied and 60 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspensions for seven days in April and 14 days between August and September last year.
The spokesman reminded 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 (http://www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/licence-foodPremises-rest.html" target="_blank">http://www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/licence-foodPremises-rest.html).
