Use Recipe & Menu Manager to meet current due diligence obligations.
There are now legal obligations in place to provide customers with allergen information relating to all items served on the menu in all foodservice environments. There are hefty fines if this obligation is not met, up to £5,000! Our allergen tool supports operators in meeting these obligations, proving comprehensive and up to date allergen detail for each dish served.
Nutritional data can be presented for each recipe using recognised traffic light alerts.
Our Recipe and Menu Manager tool utilises the familiar traffic light alert system frequently found on the packaging of food and beverages, alerting the customer to levels of Fats, Sats, Sugars and Salt.
Gross Profit Calculator
Ensuring that recipes meet desired financial returns, the GP calculator supports this key discipline.
Automating the process of calculating gross profit takes the pressure away from the kitchen brigade spending time at a desk, and instead of spending more time cooking great food. In addition, gross profit calculations are accurate and alerts can be set up if there has been a change – this requires e-Procurement.
Theoretical Gross Profit
Ensuring operators are aware of theoretical returns. Adjustments can be made to a recipe accordingly.
Not sure what the cost of a commodity actually is whilst you are creating a menu? No problem, our software can work with theoretical costs that can subsequently be amended when the actual price is received. The gross profit will then be altered accordingly
No one wants waste, it costs money! Our waste management feature helps focus on prevention.
Wastage is a significant drain on any foodservice business, costing operators unnecessary financial losses. In addition, waste is a drain on our worldwide food resources and much work is being undertaken by the foodservice sector to control this aspect of production. IndiCater has worked hard on building tools to help manage waste – our tools can assist operators track, calculating and subsequently reducing waste within their operations.
Mastering their menus with Menu Hub
Having worked with IndiCater for 10 years, we are really excited to be using the new Menu Hub module, it has given us great flexibility whilst helping us maintain compliance and control throughout our menus.
We work with a varied client base from schools, assisted living, extra care, retirement living and B&I sites and use IndiCater for its ease of use and time-saving features allowing us to manage the sharing of menu data across our business.
With IndiCater we have the flexibility to create different levels of access depending on what our clients need. Some schools have weekly menus which can be locked to ensure that they are read-only allowing the school users access to recipe cookbooks, allergen and nutritional information but without the ability to make changes. We can give some schools the ability to create their own weekly menus from a bank of recipes whilst others can have full access to create their own recipes and menus.
We recommend IndiCater to anyone looking for an easy to use, flexible and time-saving recipe and menu management software and with the added functionality of the new Menu Hub module.
