FIVAR is a web application that uses real-time open data to make food inspection smarter.

Most cities have fewer than a dozen inspectors charged with inspecting thousands of restaurants each year. This list is prioritized once annually to make sure that each location is inspected according to the law.

But when it comes to food safety, speed matters. Sending inspectors to restaurants that are more likely to have a violation can protect diners from illnesses like E. coli and Salmonella.

We work with city and county administrators
to use data to keep patrons safe.

By prioritizing inspections using FIVAR, decision-makers in city and county environmental health agencies are able to identify up to 49% more violations 12 days sooner, on average. This recaptures an estimated $4 to $6 million in its first year of implementation.
