Build with Ease
Full and varied menu cycles are easy to plan and build, using a weekly view that shows all the different meal periods for each day and the recipes allocated to each period.
Get the Full View
Full menu cost, nutritional analysis and allergen information is available for any given day or week within the cycle.
Once published centrally, menus are instantly available to the right locations at the right times via PCs or tablets, giving you complete control.
Our recipe and menu engineering software automatically calculates the nutritional value of your recipes from information entered manually, uploaded by suppliers or downloaded from the globally-recognized USDA and McCance & Widdowson databases. This means no lab costs and consultancy fees ever. Now you can easily and accurately label dishes with nutritional information with every menu change.
Our menu engineering software solution is your magic ingredient. All the allergen data you need is calculated automatically for every menu item.
