The Hayes sandwich manufacturer has been issued with a £15,220 fine for breaching hygiene regulations, for the second time. 

Fresh Foods (UK) Limited, which produces sandwiches for distribution across the UK, repeatedly breached hygiene regulations and was found guilty of four food hygiene offences last week.

The company was made to pay a fine of £15,220, with further costs of £5,000. Company director, Sukhwinder Singh, was also personally fined £3,300 for neglecting to maintain good systems. This included his inability to trace ingredients back to registered suppliers.

The previous owners of the sandwich manufacturing company, First Choice Deli Supplies Ltd, were heavily fined in 2013, before the company changed hands and became Fresh Foods.

First Choice Deli Supplies pleaded guilty to eight breaches of food hygiene regulations on 3 December 2013. It was fined £8,000, and ordered to pay £100 as a victim surcharge and £5,000 costs.
