Big Dog pleads guilty to food code breaches
The Big Dog Diner in Golden Square and its owner have been fined $50,000 for multiple breaches of the food standards code.
Business owner Kristopher Samuel Stephens, pleaded guilty to 19 separate charges in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court this week, while a further 90 charges were withdrawn by the City of Greater Bendigo.
Big Dog Diner Pty Ltd was convicted on 18 separate charges.
Each breach attracted a $10,000 penalty for Stephens and a $40,000 penalty for the business, but the aggregate fine means Mr Stephens will only be $50,000 out of pocket, plus the city’s costs.
