IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU CHOOSE PRE-COOKED MEATS

  • Cost Savings – Consider labor, fuel and shrinkage of raw meat, plus the impact of added ingredients
  • Consistency – Predictable usage, less waste, better menu ROI
  • Convenience – Just the right amount, no waste or grease disposal
  • Labor-Friendly – No extra personnel, additional training, cleanup or equipment
  • Product Stability – Slower oxidation for longer shelf life
  • Food Safety – Avoids microbial dangers and cross-contamination problems of raw meats

EVALUATE THE TRUE COST OF RAW MEAT VS. PRE-COOKED MEATS

If raw ground meat costs:
Raw Cost* $1.70 $1.80 $1.90 $2.00 $2.10 $2.20 $2.30 $2.40
…it is roughly equivalent to fully cooked meat costing:
80% Yield* $2.13 $2.25 $2.38 $2.50 $2.63 $2.75 $2.88 $3.00
70% Yield* $2.43 $2.57 $2.71 $2.86 $3.00 $3.14 $3.27 $3.43

* Raw Cost: Estimated cost of raw ground meat
* 80% Yield: Based on 80% yield of raw meat
* 70% Yield: Based on 70% yield of raw meat
