Public Sector

Making public health data more actionable is at the core of our mission. Learn how we help health agencies amplify their impact.

What we do

Thanks to food service inspections performed by public health agencies around the world, millions of consumers enjoy safer meals every day.

At Hazel Analytics, we collect and standardize inspection data from thousands of health departments across the US, Canada, and the UK around the clock. Our technology is then used by over 200 of the largest food service, retail, and delivery brands - including Starbucks, Instacart, and Cheesecake Factory - to monitor and improve food safety and regulatory compliance at over 100,000 locations.

We form a communication bridge between public-sector regulators and private-sector food safety professionals by delivering data and analytics that are timely, scalable, and actionable.

Service and Benefits

Local health departments

We can help your agency improve its data publication practices to drive visibility with food service operators, improve inspection outcomes, and reduce reinspections and complaints over time.

If your department is already publishing inspection data online, we offer a free benchmarking assessment of your department's data publication practices. We can walk you through the assessment results and provide specific guidance on how to improve.

If your department isn't publishing inspection data online yet, we offer a free consultation on how to get your agency data published in a modern, cost-effective manner. For eligible health departments, we also offer the opportunity to plug into Hazel's platform for free in order to have your agency's data instantly disseminated to food safety and compliance professionals at hundreds of food service and retail chains.

State and federal agencies

We offer state and federal agencies the opportunity to unlock insights from the largest standardized database of inspections from the US, Canada, and the UK.

With rich data at all municipal levels (national, state/province, city, postal code), our data can be used to inform food service policy and enforcement behavior.

Below are some sample questions that can be explored using Hazel's data:

  • What are the most commonly cited violations (normalized to the FDA Food Code) in my jurisdiction? How does this compare to a neighboring jurisdiction?
  • What types of scoring systems are observed, and which jurisdictions have the highest concentration of top scores?
  • Which jurisdictions cite the most violations, and which cite the fewest?
  • How often are restaurants in a given jurisdiction inspected? How does this compare to the scheduled frequency?
  • What can we learn about comparative performance between chain restaurants and independent restaurants?

Drawing on years of service and collaboration with customers, we've distilled our observations about the impact of data publication practices on corporate compliance into an informative whitepaper for policymakers, agency administrators, and others working on food safety in the public interest.
