      1 person gets the whole pizza i.e. 1 person = 100%
      Pizza

      2 persons get half a pizza each. i.e. 2 person = 50%
      25%
      25%
      4 persons get only a quarter pizza each. i.e. 4 person = 25%
      25%

      Assume that your total sale for the day is Rs. 1000/-
      Rs. 1000
      Your product is food.
      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.
    • Food Cost – Application and Practical Example
      Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce – Heinz and Maggi.
