One advantage of limiting the number of ingredients in a menu is improved stock rotation. The result: reduced food losses and higher margins. And by using fully cooked products, you keep both waste and costs down!
With cooked products, labour costs are also reduced for both cooking and prep time. Because they are easy to use and to portion, (just thaw the required quantity), the cost per portion is stable and easy to calculate.
