Illegal food sellers in spotlight

UNLICENSED food stalls and restaurants will come under closer scrutiny this year when the government introduces revised food safety laws.

Prior to their introduction, officials will launch a campaign to crack down on those who contravene food safety regulations. They will visit restaurants and food markets on 40 streets in 10 areas to see how they source their produce, and evaluate their cooking and presentation methods, officials said.

They will pay special attention to individuals and groups producing and selling food without the required licenses, while landlords who rent premises to unlicensed food vendors will also be targeted.

About 30 percent of the restaurants and food stalls in the city are unlicensed, an official said.

One of the aims of the campaign will be to remove unlicensed food stalls near Metro stations, which create bottlenecks and block public areas.
