  • *Ingredient sub category: This is optional you can leave this blank ( e.g Salad, Herbs, Citrus fruits, berries, Flour, Beef, Seabass etc..)
  • Ingredient cost: no need to put in currency symbol just put in price per unit. Use decimal points
  • Unit size: this is the size of the unit you buy (e.g for a 3kg box of tomatoes you would put in 3)

Price list to include allergens

In your account settings you have the option of using our 14 official allergens or removing/ adjusting/ adding or editing them.

When sending the template to your supplier, they just need to put a lower case y where there is an allergen or may contain this allergen in the box.

When imported into the system it will then automatically put the allergen into any sub recipes, recipes and menus as you type them.

If you are not going to adjust any of the 14 official UK and European allergens then you can use our supplied sheet.

If you do wish to adjust any of them you can do this in your account settings and then export a sample ingredient price list and it will have your selected allergens on the list.
