He adds that all three serving places will be reviewed on a continuous basis, as they announce that they have rectified.

Follow up

According to Johansen, at the four places that were not closed, there were minor discrepancies as well, but not enough for the Norwegian Food Safety Authority to close those places.

– We are out all the time, both alone and on these joint ventures with other agencies. Right now, Aker Brygge was very relevant considering the weather and the number of visitors, so we prioritized that area this time, Johansen says to Dagbladet.

The target of the joint controls is to prevent and detect labour crimes. The controls revealed several conditions, which together with fees and closures, are followed up by measures and sanctions from the various agencies.

Hopes for quick reopening

Dagbladet has been in contact with two of the three restaurants that were closed before the weekend. The daily manager at Tasty Green, Jasmeet Singh, says they are already in the process of rectifying.

– There were only a few minor discrepancies, so they were corrected on the day that the check was carried out. We hope to be open again very soon, says Singh.
