TECHNOLOGY

assurance and your recipes get
managed better."
One of the big things that's
changed in recipe management
in recent years is the acceptance
of technology, Barrett says.
"I would say in general the
entire industry is more receptive than it was three years ago.
They're allowing tablets on
the production floor. They're
not worried about them being
stolen because software can lock
them down."
Or take Android-based scanning technology. The entry point
for scanners used to be as much
as $1,500. Now, for $600, you
get "an awesome little handheld
computer that's also a phone."
"Costs have come down, so
you don't need to be an early
adopter now to jump in like you
used to," Barrett says. "Tablets
have protective covers now.
They're a lot more rugged than
they used to be. Anybody still
using paper is who are our target
audience is, and most people
are still using paper on spreadsheets. So we see a lot of room
for growth."

Putting nutrition
front and center
Recipe management software not
only makes the jobs of grocery
foodservice and other foodservice
providers easier, it also helps them
meet the needs of 21st century
consumers, says Terry Corcoran,
national account manager for
Bowling Green, Ohio-based DayMark Safety Systems.
"Shoppers are focused on less
processed, high quality, and fresh
foods," Corcoran says. "Having
the right nutritional recipe management software is very important to offer consumers an exact
detailed balance of nutritional
guidelines."
Recipe management systems
are also crucial for commissaries,

central kitchens and other providers of prepared foods and other value-added items to grocery
retailers, Corcoran says.
"The success of consumer
loyalty and repeat sales today
depends on how commissaries
and kitchens can provide not
only good tasting foods, but also
a good balanced nutritional diet
that meets their needs."
In 2017, DayMark partnered
with British nutrition analyst software provider Nutritics on a system to help grocery deli, bakery
and prepared food departments
accurately and conveniently
perform nutritional analyses of
grab-and-go items.
Nutritics Insight is a comprehensive recipe management and
nutrition labeling software that
allows kitchen managers and staff
to build and manage recipes and
menu data and create custom
grab-and-go labels using an intuitive, easy to use system that can
serve one or multiple locations.
Nutritics Insight can break
down instore items by calories;
sugar, sodium and vitamin content; glycemic index; and other
components. The system also
provides a breakdown of overall
recipe costs, costs-per-portion,
and reports cost contribution of
individual ingredients, helping to
manage recipe profitability. And
the platform's label creator helps
maintain FDA compliant nutrition
panels and complete labels for
grab-and-go items.
"Nutritics has been working
closely with DayMark to deliver a
market leading solution to foodservice clients across the US and
beyond and we continue to innovate together to offer our clients
a unique software offering," says
Stephen Nolan, Nutritics' chief
operating officer. "As part of this,
we have commenced offering
our shared clients a free trial of
the software to show them the

RECIPE MANAGEMENT
SYSTEMS: A CHECKLIST
Cloud-based. Menu management systems should be
cloud-based. This way menus and related information can
be accessed anywhere, anytime, in one or hundreds of
locations.
Robust database. Look for a system that has access to an
extensive database of recipes and ingredients. And make
sure it provides nutritional analysis for hundreds of food
items and ingredients.
Recipe cards. Look for a system that provides easy-tofollow, easy-to-understand recipe cards. A complicated
recipe card can slow down production.
Watch, pause, practice. Training videos are available with
some systems. These videos are proving to be one of the
most effective ways to learn how to prepare food recipes
quickly and properly.
Bundled. Some systems include integrated hardware
bundles. One such bundle includes a tablet that communicates in real time with a wireless printer that can print
food labels.
Due diligence. Don't rush to make a purchase. Once a
distributor has demonstrated a system, ask for a free trial.
This way you can determine the system's learning curve,
its features and benefits, and if it's right for you.

capability and power of our solutions before purchasing."
A strong recipe management
culture, Nolan says, should be
the backbone of any foodservice
organization. When running
successfully, it's proven to reduce
costs, reduce the risk of allergen
contamination and provide
increased transparency to the
end customer.
"Customers are demanding
more information on what they
are eating and having this available through a centralized library
of electronic recipes allows you
to print accurate food labels,

deliver recipe information digitally and control what is in your
recipes," he says.
Further, as information is passed
through to the end customer, it's
crucial, Nolan adds, to maximize
the food labelling opportunity
available. "It can be a key point of
differentiation to your competitors and offers the opportunity to
showcase product information
such as food provenance, health
claims and nutrition. This information can all be stored in your
recipe management software and
leveraged to give you the extra
edge over the competition."
