To reach all the results obtained in these indicators, we worked with all the daily reports of departures from the warehouse to the buffet table, making the monthly totals of the reports of the months and thus be able to arrive at the totalization of the studied quarter of January-February-March 2009.

Families were analyzed according to their incidence on costs through the ABC classification (Pareto principle). Those that were classified in A and B were The aforementioned tool was also applied to them. They proved to be the families with the highest incidence on the cost (A) of dairy products and derivatives, and sausages and cold cuts, and in B, beef, vegetables and fruits on which you must constantly monitor. It was developed based on consumption per capita of the months analyzed, the indicators for the installation in three specific families which were compared with the indicators established by the Business Group, which resulted in the meat (beef and poultry) have much lower per capita consumption, not being so in the froutes, with which it could be proposed to limit for meat the indices of consumption proposed by the Administrators Hotel
