NEA suspends Cedele food shop licence

Singapore’s National Environment Agency (NEA) has suspended the licence of one of the Cedele chain’s food shop at Punggol Waterway Point mall for selling unclean food and failing to register one of its staff members.

Bakery chain Cedele, says on its website that the outlet in question has been closed for “servicing”. It is scheduled to reopen on August 11.

NEA says the licence has been suspended for two weeks, to August 10, following the outlet accumulating 12 demerit points over the past 12 months. It was fined a total of S$800 (US$598) for the two offences.

NEA says the shop could have had its operations suspended for four weeks, or lose its licence altogether.

Meanwhile, all food handlers at the suspended premises must attend and pass the Basic Food Hygiene course again before they can resume work.
