Least Cost Formulation: Turning Mathematics into Money

For red meat processors, making the most of raw material is an ideal situation that results in yield improvement with increased margins. If inventory is not maximized to its entirety, opportunities are lost along with potential revenue. What if a formula existed to ensure all ingredients are maximized to their fullest? Well, it actually does and it is referred to as Least Cost Formulation.

This white paper, ‘Least Cost Formulation: Turning Mathematics into Money,’ explains what Least Cost Formulation (LCF) is, how to calculate it and key factors to consider for cost break down. It further outlines how inline fat analysis systems, by providing precise chemical lean measurements, make way to this mathematical formula that optimizes raw material for recipe and batch management. Learn how LCF helps increase bottom-line margins, maximize profits and consistently produce high quality products for meat processors.
