Ingredient Production

Not all ingredients can be purchased from suppliers – some of them can be cooked. For recording such products and determine their cost, it is necessary to fill the production of ingredients.

For example, a restaurant purchased several types of pepper. The cook mixes them and uses them to prepare most dishes. In order not to add each type of pepper to the calculation cards of dishes, you can make one ingredient – "pepper".

To do this, you need to take several steps:

  1. Create a new compound ingredient.
  2. Fill the production of ingredient.
  3. Add a new ingredient to the dishes.


Access rights

To fill the production of ingredients, you need the right to "Write" in the "Invoice" section.
