Our shopping list feature is one of the best parts about Recipe Cost Calculator. If you are wondering if you have enough inventory to make it through your week and you don't want to do a bunch of manual work to figure it out, you need this feature.
No matter what kind of food business you are, at some point you ask yourself the question:
"Do I have enough ingredients and packaging to make it through the day/week?"
Let's look at the scenario where you are a manufacturer of baked goods (but you can easily translate this example into a catering or restaurant scenario without a problem).
You know that this week you plan on making the following items:
- 20 batches of Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 10 batches of Peanut Butter Cookies
- 5 batches of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
- 30 batches of Cranberry Scones
But how do you know what inventory you need on hand in order to bake all that product?
Using our shopping list feature, in about 20 seconds you can generate a list of all the inventory you need to have on hand to make whatever recipes you have planned for your daily or weekly production. This feature alone has saved our users literally hundred of hours over the past year.
