West London Baker Fined £10,000 for Food Hygiene Offenses - student project

A West London baker was fined nearly £10,000 after pleading guilty to multiple food safety violations.


Santhru Bakery of Ruislip committed multiple food safety violations between November 2016 and February 2017. The charges included failure to maintain equipment and facilities clean and in good, working condition.


Santhru Bakery shut down earlier in the year, but Councillor Philip Corthorne found the conviction necessary. "I hope other businesses in a similar position get the message that closing down or selling up won’t get them off the hook," said the Councillor.


Santhru Srikan, owner of the bakery, pleaded guilty to five food hygiene offences and was fined a total of £8,750 for the violations, plus £1,456 in costs, and a victim surcharge of £170.
