Ajinomoto Windsor (AWI), Ontario, Calif., announced the Food Cost Calculator, designed to help restaurant operators calculate food costs and other key profit-building functions.

Available to any restaurant operator in Apple’s iTunes store and Android’s Google Play, the Food Cost Calculator enables users to input cost-per-case, unit of measure, pieces per case and other variables to calculate their real food cost and desired food cost percentage. Additional features enable users to e-mail, text, save or print the calculation.

“One of the biggest keys to driving innovation is finding creative solutions to solving everyday problems. In this case, helping foodservice operators better manage their bottom line and overall food costs in a very handy and easy-to-use mobile format,” says Brad Kumin, vice president of marketing for foodservice.
