9780024142412: Foodservice Procurement: Purchasing for Profit

Contemporary in perspective, this user-friendly introduction to foodservice procurement -- purchasing, receiving, storage, and inventory control -- emphasizes that purchasing 1) is the first step in preparing menu items that satisfy customers, and 2> is not a cost center in the operation (as it was for many years), but that it contributes to the profit, and that every dollar saved is a dollar profit. Stresses the importance of the procurement unit in the foodservice operation -- that purchasing, receiving, storage, and inventory control are the base of the entire operation. Explains how to make decisions about which products meet the quality standards required by the customer and at the same time find the lowest price for a product. Emphasizes the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point system. Uses the Food Guide Pyramid as the conceptual framework for the food section. Discusses how processing or manufacturing and marketing or distribution, exclusive of the cost of materials, packaging, and overhead, can add value to products and increase profits. For those preparing to work in a commercial or noncommercial foodservice.
