Detailed examples

Product Development

Replacing one or more ingredients in a product focusing on production costs

Examples, price:

* Product 1 consisting of article A, B, C – cost price 7,5 DKK, net weight 125 g

* Product 1a consisting of article A, B, B – cost price 6,9 DKK, net weight 125 g

* Product 1b consisting of article A, B, E – cost price DKK 7,5, net weight 112.5 g

The example shows how prices can be calculated. 1a focuses on lower cost, where 1b focuses on the same cost but less portion. The example is superficial, and it is assumed here that the articles C, D and E have approximately the same properties, in the case of taste experience etc.

Similarly, nutrients can be calculated. All nutrients are calculated and displayed in real time, Also the organic percentage of the product is displayed. System also shows how much each article (here A, B, C, D and E) in isolation supplies the product into nutrients.

Replacing one or more raw materials in a product focused on nutritional content, here fat

Examples, nutritional content:

* Product 1 consisting of article A, B, C – Fat 11,5 g / 100 g

* Product 1a consisting of article s A, B, D – Fat 12,5 g / 100 g

* Product 1b consisting of article A, B, E – Fat 9,5 g / 100 g 

 

Declaration of ingredients

What are articles, compound articles, own recipes and the final product?

* Articles A – wheat flour (nutrition information is derived from the data sheet wheat flour (A))

* Article B – grains (nutrition information is derived from the data sheet grains (B))

* Compound article S – ‘flour mix’ consisting of wheat flour and grains (purchased ready mixed, nutrition information is derived from the data sheet on ”flour mix’ (S)).

* Own recipe X – ‘flour mix’ = wheat flour and grains (mixed by themselves, nutrition information is derived from the data sheets of wheat flour (A) and grains (B)

Final product Y – contains wheat flour A and ‘flour mix’ S, where nutrition declaration on product Y sums up the article wheat flour A with wheat flour from the compound article S in the ingredient list. Nutrition information is derived from the data sheets of article A and S When preparing nutritional declaration on product Y, the articles A, B, S and X are broken down into certain articles, which are summed up and sorted in descending order. All this happens automatically in DANKOST PRO, but is relatively complicated to calculate in traditional Excel models.

 

‘Product in Product’

Other examples of ‘Own recipes’: Truffle, marcipan, basic dough, fond, bechamel sauce and others that form part of the final product.

The function is also used for packing in eg 20-piece boxes, where the final product is the box made up of different own recipes. This could be chocolate eg.

When an ingredients or sub recipe is updated all relevant recipes are automatically updated. This is one of the major steps in terms of going from Excel to DANKOST PRO. In the process of developing this feature the industry had are request that declarations are not updated automatically. Therefore declarations need to be updated by pressing “Create declaration” to fulfill an update.
