Fines were issued to Amphai Thai Groceries Pty Ltd, Chadstone Market Pty Ltd and Gibson’s Wine Store following covert inspections by Liquor Control Victoria (LCV) inspectors.
‘The licensing framework exists to ensure businesses and individuals who want to sell liquor are suitable and doing so in a way that supports responsible supply and consumption’, Danielle Huntersmith, Chair of the VLC, has said. ‘Unlicensed selling of liquor is serious and we will not hesitate to act to protect Victorians’.
LCV invites the public and industry to report suspected unlicensed liquor supply via an online complaint form.
