Anything giving standard form is going to be a derivative of PAF and/or 
UPRN databases.

The argument for the food safety data is the addresses are as provided 
by the business.  The reason you can't use Land Registry information is 
that the addresses have been validated.

I suspect the Post Office might challenge even the food safety data if 
OSM postcode coverages started to seriously compete.
