Subsidy scheme accepts applications

The Food Courts Subsidy Scheme was launched today and opened for applications to provide financial support to operators of eligible licensed food factories in operation, the Food & Environmental Hygiene Department announced.   Launched under the fourth round of the Anti-epidemic Fund, the scheme will provide a one-off subsidy ranging from $20,000 to $100,000 to licence holders of food factories according to the floor area of the premises as specified on the business operation licence.   The department explained that "food court" means a place inside a shopping mall comprising licensed food factories and an adjoining seating area with tables and chairs or stools provided by the property management or owner of the mall for non-exclusive use by its visitors, which may include patrons of the licensed food factories.   The scheme requires an applicant to make a declaration, including indicating that the food business is still in operation, and if the business is not operated by the licence holder, consent from every operator in respect of the food business on supporting the application for the subsidy is required.   Application for the scheme will run until March 31. The form and guidelines on how to apply can be downloaded from the department’s website.   Upon receipt of the completed application form and supporting documents and after verification, the department will disburse the subsidy in about two weeks.
