May 15, 2020

The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) is operating the Catering Business (Social Distancing) Subsidy Scheme under the Anti-epidemic Fund.  The Scheme is now open to applications from eligible food licence holders for a grant of one-off subsidy.  A one-off subsidy will be provided to eligible licence holders of the premises in operation including general restaurants, light refreshment restaurants, marine restaurants and factory canteens according to the approved floor area of the licensed premises.

The scheme provides subsidies ranging from $250,000 to $2,200,000 to eligible licence holders of general restaurants, light refreshment restaurants, marine restaurants and factory canteens in operation according to the floor area of the premises as specified on the licence, primarily in support of payment of employees’ salaries during a six-month period following approval of the application. To provide immediate relief to the catering sector, the subsidy will be dished out upfront, in two tranches.
