The OC Health Care Agency (HCA) has issued the 2018 Award of Excellence to 3,110 Orange County food facilities to recognize local businesses for their outstanding food safety and sanitation practices during 2017.

This annual recognition was created to provide an incentive for retail food businesses that consistently meet or exceed health and safety standards for food facility operations. In 1999, the first year of the program, 584 food establishments received the recognition. With increased outreach and improved compliance with food safety laws, the number of recipients has grown significantly since its inception.
