TECHNOLOGY

to apps that can be used on
phones and to the use of tablets
on the floors of retail perimeter
departments, commissaries
and other areas where food is
produced or sold. Ingredient
labels, for instance, are
increasingly being printed off
directly from tablets.
" More and more people are
moving away from desktops and
laptops. "

Flexibility for commissaries
The ability to quickly recalculate
recipe ingredients, quantities,
nutritional facts, and costs also
provides superior flexibility to
commissary processes. For
instance, Smirlies said, Invatron's
traceability application identifies
specific items to be pulled for
recall with 100% precision. If
an occurrence were to happen
or an ingredient substitution is
required, retailers can centrally
change recipes and quickly
disseminate revised food safety
information to their store labeling
scales and printers.
" Invatron's recipe management
technology capability supports
the nuances of every department
in the store perimeter, inclusive of
providing cutting tests, especially
to establish and maintain
cutting tests for the meat
department, " Smirlies said. " Our
recipe manager integrates into
a comprehensive replenishment
solution with the ability to
understand the consumption
of raw ingredients through
the production process, the
backroom, and sellable products
aiding inventory management. "
In addition, the system's
advanced cutting tests are the
most accurate on the market.
Recipes and cutting tests are
foundational transformation
data and help commissaries,
retailers and other food
industry professionals maintain

With Invatron's system, margin is auto-calculated at the sellable level.

a perpetual inventory of
raw ingredients used in the
production of retail products.
" Our recipe management
technology ensures the accurate
demand for all sellable products.
For example, retailers sell melons
as cut fruit products, requiring
cut data, in the off-peak seasons
and whole product in peak
season. "
Cutting tests represent the
actual sellable yield results of
individual cut tests performed
across all stores over time.
The data collected for each of
these tests is aggregated and
analyzed to produce cutting
yields data that is then used
for replenishment formulas
needed for fresh ordering
recommendations of individual
backroom source products,
Smirlies said.
" Say you're preparing a recipe
for carrot soup. The recipe
requires 1 kilogram of carrots,
However, once you have peeled
them and removed the tops and
tips, you may only have 700
grams of carrots left to use. For
accurate costing, yield testing

must be carried out on all
ingredients and recipes. "
It also, he added, plays a
large role in meeting the needs
of today's health-conscious
customers. Shoppers demand
detailed information on what
they are eating and having this
available through a centralized
library of electronic recipes
allows customers to print
accurate food labels, deliver
recipe information digitally and
control what's in their recipes.
" Optimizing food labeling
opportunities is the true recipe
for success, " Smirlies said.
" Invatron's recipe management
breaks down calories, allergens
and intolerances, and nutrition
lists. And the platform's label
creator helps maintain FDAcompliant nutrition panels and
complete labels for grab-and-go
items, healthy recipes with
a complete nutrition profile
increasing customer confidence
and trust. "
The simplicity of Invatron's
software might be just as
important as its accuracy,
he added.

" The reason for the high user
adoption rate of our intuitive
system is that our recipe
management software provides
just the right amount of features
and data to display the most
important information with an
intuitive interface that makes it
easy to create, cost, and manage
recipes.The ability to manage
the replenishment process at
the stove level, commissary,
or central kitchen with the
capability to aggregate demand
across multiple locations to be
consolidated is a game changer.
Replenishment is always
calculated on scale to avoid
unnecessary shrinkage. "
Having deployed Invatron's
solutions in more than 25,000
grocery stores, Smirlies said the
company knows that strong
recipe management processes
should be the backbone of
today's food retail businesses.
When adopted correctly, it's
proven to reduce costs, reduce
the risk of allergen contamination, and most importantly,
provide increased transparency
to the end customer.
