Primary Cause of Excessive Food Costs - Over Production

Over production of just 10% can cost a 100 bed facility over $16,000/year in excess costs.

Consider a 100 bed facility with 10 empty beds, if recipes are prepared for 100 servings either because of habit or your current program can’t calculate the exact number of servings, here is how you are wasting money:

$1.50/meal X 10 meals= $15.00/meal time
$15.00/meal time X 3 meals/day = $45.00/day
$45.00/day X 365 days= $16,425.00/year

Here is how we can help.  Dietech-Production can provide you with some of the following:
· Scalable recipes with nutritional information
· Selective menus
· Ability to make menu changes from one location and have extension sheets, posting menus, tray cards and production tallies modified.
· Assign advanced preparations for meals to be listed on production tallies.
