The operator of a Belfast Pizza Takeaway business has been fined £2250 at Belfast Magistrates’ Court (Tuesday 4 June) in relation to food hygiene offences. The prosecution was taken by Belfast City Council against the food business operator of Love Pizza at 166 Ormeau Road, Belfast, following a routine hygiene inspection of the premises on 28 April 2023.

During inspections, Environmental Health Officers found Love Pizza was not pest proofed and there was an active mouse infestation. The premises was not kept clean and maintained to an acceptable standard.

The premises were rated one indicating ‘major improvement necessary’to comply with the food hygiene requirements.

The food business operator agreed to close voluntarily until officers were satisfied sufficient measures had been taken to remove the imminent risk to public health.

The premises has since been re-rated following a further inspection where hygiene conditions within the premises were deemed to be at satisfactory standard and a food hygiene rating of 4 (good) issued.

The food business operator was fined a total of £2250 for three offences and ordered to pay £173 legal costs.
