Do you utilise a procedure or approach to price your goods, or do you just hope for the best? Join us for further information on how to price out your items more methodically.

Calculating the cost of your products is an important but often difficult process. Our New Product Development and Innovation Manager, Zoe Plant, will walk companies through this beginner’s approach to budgeting out recipes, ensuring that you cover your expenditures, pay your bills, yourself and staff, and calculate different profit margins.

Throughout the event, Zoe will guide businesses through a costing worksheet, outlining the various components and fielding specific inquiries regarding the particular production procedures used by your company.

It may aid your understanding further if you were to bring along examples of your recipes and costs, so you can work them into the spreadsheet as you go along.
