Yield? Shrinkage? I don’t have time to calculate all that. Can you do it for me? YES!

I buy the same item packed differently from the same or different vendors.Can you compare that pricing for me? YES!

How Does reciProfity Calculate Yield and Shrinkage?

Book of Yields Conversions

We automate your yields and shrinkage with the integrated  Book of Yields

  • Food costing  yields and shrinkage are the only way to achieve true accuracy . You can’t possibly figure out all of those conversions and yields. How many cups are there in a lb of sugar? How many fluid ounces in a bottle of Stoli? What’s left after I tip and peel carrots? How many cups of 1/4″ diced carrots does a pound yield? What is my yield after trimming tenderloin? Cleaning fish?

  • The Book of Yields is the ‘bible’ for yields and equivalents. And it’s now fully integrated into reciProfity. With an integrated shrinkage calculator to determine the most accurate food cost in the industry. Like we said, all the work is done for you!

  • Accuracy: The Book of Yields contains built in conversions from weight to volume and volume to weight, as well as trim and cooking yields for over 1,000 raw food ingredients

  • Time: when you match a Book of Yields item with one of your inventory items, you’ll see all the appropriate conversions and preps automatically added to that item, as well as yield %.

  • Agility: you can respond to market fluctuations and eroding margins BEFORE a full sales cycle.

  •  Consistency: you create fully standardized recipes, with accurate measures, instructions and images. This is essential for customer satisfaction.

  • Food Costing: yields less than 100% cost you money. reciProfity uses the Price after Shrinkage as the item cost in recipes. Resulting in more accurate food costs.

    How do we do it? When you enter an ingredient just click on the Select Book of Yields Conversion and then choose your ingredient. reciProfity automatically calculates the yield and any after shrinkage price.
