Restaurant firm stands trial over kitchen charges


The owners of a Swansea restaurant are due to stand trial after being accused of a string of kitchen hygiene offences, including failing to properly maintain equipment.

One World Buffet Ltd, which runs the Peachy Keens restaurant, face nine charges under the Food Hygiene (Wales) Regulations 2006 Act, according to the South Wales Evening Post.

The company and a member of its staff are alleged to have failed to ensure food was protected against any contamination to render the food unfit for human consumption and failed to make sure the premises were clean, maintained, and in good repair and condition.

The paper reported that they also face charges of failing to ensure fittings and equipment were being cleaned and disinfected, and that staff were not trained in food hygiene principles.

The company has denied all charges and will stand trial at Swansea Magistrates’ Court on November 26 and 27. The individual has also denied all charges and elected to stand trial at crown court, with a date due to be set later this month.

The prosecution is being brought by Swansea City Council.
