Yield Costing (made simple)

Yield Costing (made simple)


This app provides a simple solution for catering and hospitality professionals to calculate accurate cost prices for ingredients and recipes, taking into account raw wastage and cooking loss.

The user selects or inputs:
1. A currency (i.e. GBP)
2. RAW WASTAGE or COOKING LOSS
3. Ingredient or product name
4. Supplier purchase (cost) price of ingredient or product name
5. Gross weight/measure before preparation or cooking
6. Wastage weight/measure after preparation or cooking
7. Amount of raw or cooked ingredient used in a recipe

The app will calculate true costs associated with these food items. In this way, accurate prices for ingredients and recipes can be calculated.

For example: the app will calculate the true price of an alcoholic reduction; calculate the true cost of a 60g portion of prepared broccoli; or calculate the financial effect of cooking loss on pork belly when portioning the cooked food by weight.

Multi-functional, this app provides accurate prices in an instant for chefs on the go, featuring US, UK and Metric weights and measures. These are divided into 3 categories: Mass & Weight; Liquid Volume; Dry Volume. Notably, the user can convert between weights and measures within each category. On a very practical level, this app aids in developing sensible pricing strategies for caterers and hospitality professionals.

Not working properly at all! "Measure of Raw Ingredients BEFORE preparation?" I put in 1000 grams (why not kilograms?) "Measure of Raw Ingredients AFTER preparation?" I put in 850 grams. Net Result. Wastage given as 85%; Net Yield given as 15%. Figures are reversed. Therefore cost is incorrect also. A basic screw-up. Gonna fix it?? Thank you. Steven

Useful app This is a really useful app that allows you to perform a range of advance calculations related to food. The interface is a bit complicated and it takes me a whiles to get use to it. It is all about the details and really helps!

Very Useful App! This app is really useful for a chef, restaurant owner or someone that is interested in keeping up with cooking ingredients loss or waste. It is very precise and includes many currencies around the world.
