Invoices can not populate reciProfity ingredient information because they do not contain enough of the information that allows us to price out recipes.
Invoices don’t usually include pack size, just case size, how many cases you purchased and the price. Order guides DO have pack size information.
Without knowing what’s IN the case we can’t price out a recipe.
For example if you purchase a case of flour the invoice says 1 case at $35.00 per case.
It doesn’t have a column that says there are 2 25 LB bags per case. Without knowing how many lbs of flour there are in each case we have no way of knowing the cost per lb of flour and so can’t price a recipe that uses 1 lb of flour.
Below is a picture of the reciProfity product information for flour and the fields that are included in an order guide but not in an invoice.
Knowing how many lbs of flour are in the case we can show both the case cost and the cost per lb.
