## How To Cost A Meat Block

Typical Meat Block Costing Using A Boerewors Product As An Example
Beef (80:20) 20.0 kg @ R 35.00 /kg = R 700.00
Pork (70:30) 10.0 kg @ R 28.00 /kg = R 280.00
Vinegar 5% 1.0 litres @ R 2.60 /litre = R 2.60
Water 1.0 kg @ R - = R -
Boerewors Batchpack 1.1 kg @ R 59.00 /kg = R 64.90
TOTAL 31.1 kg = R 1047.50
COST OF MEAT BLOCK /kg (i) R 1 047.50 ÷ 33.1 kg = R 31.65 /kg*

(*This excludes the cost of the casing).

### The Cost Of The Casing Can Be Calculated As Follows:

Fill one bundle of the casing, weigh the end product and divide the number of kilograms into the cost per bundle to give a cost per kilogram.

Example casing cost calculation
Casing costs R 59.95 /bundle
Filled bundle weight 48.00 kg
COST OF CASING (ii) = R 1.25 /kg
Cost of meat block (i) = R 31.65 /kg
Cost of casing (ii) = R 1.25 /kg
TOTAL PRODUCT COST = R 32.90 /kg*

(*Excluding the cost of packaging and labour).
