    Contributing margin.


    Contributing margin is calculated by deducting the cost of producing a food item from its selling price. This represents the portuin of sales revenue that is not used up by cost.

    It shows the profit a business eventually makes after considering its costs incurred.

    This is an important consideration for businesses because it shows if a business venture is profitable and worth continuing. When the contributing margin is negative, it means that the business is running at a loss.
