Online Recipes can be created with ease using live cost and ingredient data received direct from suppliers. Clients can create an unlimited library resource of recipes, each one presenting essential information including recipe costings and margins, comprehensive allergen and nutritional data, detailed recipe specification and production methods. Clients can also upload dish photographs, offering a fully aligned recipe management tool.

To complete the production process, our Menu management tool works side by side with Recipe Manager in creating the definitive menu planner. Using our clients own recipes held in their online library, weekly menus can be created, providing detailed financial information including production numbers, anticipated gross profit and more.

To get the most out of Recipe & Menu Manager, adding e-Procurement provides live supplier catalogue data. Together these tools offer a fully integrated online production solution, with significant financial returns.

Driving food and beverage costs

St Monica Trust manage nationally recognised retirement villages across Bristol and North Somerset, offering quality sheltered accommodation for the elderly. The Trust strive to provide their residents with the best possible experience, and in doing so, be recognised as the leaders at what they do. The provision of food and hospitality is essential in achieving these objectives.
