Recipe Costing

The cost price of prepared food can be calculated by adding component ingredients as stock items to the Idealpos database. Each time a complete product is sold to a customer the stock level of the component ingredients are deducted from stock..  By entering these ingredients into Idealpos through Stock Purchases or Purchase Orders, the cost price is updated and flows through to the indirect item, updating the total cost price of that complete product.

See below the example of the Idealpos Hamburger, and how the cost price is calculated by entering the recipe for that item:
