Assume that your total sale for the day is Rs. 1000/-
Rs. 1000
Rs. 300
In order to produce the food to sell, you incurred a cost of Rs. 300.
Your net saving at the end of the day will be Rs. 700 (Rs. 1000 – Rs. 300). This can also be referred to as PROFIT.
In order to increase your profit, you will have to reduce the food cost, given that the total sale is a constant.
• Food Cost – A Definition
7
Food Cost is defined as the cost incurred to produce the food to be sold.
This is expressed in percentage (%).
Hence, Food Cost % is mathematically defined as the ratio of the cost of food to the total sales.
It is mathematically expressed as:
Food Cost % = Cost of Food x 100
Total Sale
• Food Cost – An Interpretation
The food cost is directly proportional to the cost of food.
This implies that the higher the cost of ingredients, the higher will be the Food Cost %.
The higher the Food Cost %, the lower is your profit.

• Food Cost – An Interpretation cont’d…
The food cost is indirectly proportional to the total sales.
This implies that higher the sale, the lower is the cost of Food Cost % and vice versa.
What is the impact of Food Cost % on your restaurant’s profit ?

• Food Cost – Understanding impact on Profit
10
The higher the cost of ingredients used to prepare the dish, the higher is the Food Cost %.
Pizza
The higher the total sale, the lower is the Food Cost % and vice versa.
A higher Food Cost % will eat into a larger share of your pizza, leaving you with a smaller piece and vice – versa.
