How do I add new Stock Items

Go to the Kitchen Manager Admin tab [1], select the Stock Items [2] option in the Explorer Pane and click the Add stock Item [3] button.



You can edit an Existing Stock Item by double clicking on a stock item (i.e Whole Brown Lentils).

After entering data in the stock item fields, click either the Save Button [5], which will close the Add Stock Item window, or click the Save & New Button [6] which will save the Stock Item and keep the Add Stock Item window open to add another Stock Item.

To populate the Stock Item fields use the information provided by the supplier as follows:

  1. Code
  2. Stock Item
  3. Supplier
  4. Super Category
  5. Category
  6. Sub Category
  7. Pack Contents / Weight per Pack / Base Unit Of Measure (UOM) i.e. Kg
  8. Price
  9. Priced by Pack
  10. Note
  11. Picture


When the New Stock Item has been added to the Stock Items table use the Nutrition [12] information to populate the Nutrition data [13] and the Ingredients and Allergen [14] to record the Allergens [15] and Ingredients [16].


When you have filled in the Allergen, Nutrition and Ingredient details click Save [17].

Linking with McCance and Widdowson Database

Stock Items can now be linked to the McCance and Widdowson Database to populate the Nutritional Analysis fields.

Navigate to Kitchen Manager > Admin > click Stock Items [1] > select the Stock Item [2]


Once a new tab has been opened select Nutrition [3] then click on the Magnifying Glass [4].

Once the Magnifying Glass has been selected you can then Search [5] for the relevant Item [6] and select Add [7] to link all McCance and Widdowson Nutritional data for that item over to Cypad.
