Information System to Track Food at Stock Level
Inventory management has long been considered a critical component of a well-managed restaurant. Controlling this prime cost has been the focus of classic inventory management practices. More recently, food safety and security issues have added a need for traceability or the ability for restaurants to trace food products back to their source and trace them forward to the end consumer.
Effective food stock inventory begins before products are purchased. Effective menu planning and recipe development
is the first step in inventory management. Menu planning and recipe development should utilize a minimum of products while providing enough variety to maximize customer satisfaction and good nutrition. Procuring, forecasting, ordering, and receiving ensure that the right foods in the correct quantities are received just in time for production. Storage practices keep food secure and minimize waste. Effective and efficient production and service practices ensure that customers consistently receive desired foods freshly prepared, served in correct portions, and in a safe environment.

Report templates, bid language, sample standard operating procedures, checklists, and resources are included in this guide.
