WA restaurant fined $50k for Food Act breaches
WA duck restaurant Good Fortune Roast has been slammed with a $50,000 fine for failing to comply with food safety standards and for running an unregistered food business.
According to WA Today, the Bayswater restaurant was charged with not taking the necessary steps to prevent the contamination of food and failing to have the appropriate hand-washing facilities.
The business also failed to use premises and food transport vehicles that complied with state health standards.
City officers first visited the Bayswater venue in November last year and found its parent company Good Fortune Holding Pty Ltd had not given written notification to the city for the premises.
In total, the penalties amounted to more than $50,000, including $40,000 for the health and food safety breaches and $5000 for conducting an unregistered business.
Good Fortune Holding Pty Ltd currently has two remaining venues in Perth, based in Northbridge and East Victoria Park.
