2PLANNING TECHNIQUES FOR LOGISTICS AND TRANSPORT OPERATIONSCost of labeling and filling each jar = €0.03Therefore, total cost of each jar of Western Food Salsa = € (0.13 + 0.05 + 0.03 + 0.02 + 0.10 +0.03) = €0.37Thus, the profit earned from each jar of Western Food Salsa = Revenue earned – Total Cost= € (1.64-0.37)= €1.27.For Mexico City Salsa, the blend contains 70% whole tomatoes, 10% tomato sauce and 20%tomato paste.Therefore, quantity of whole tomatoes in a jar =70100×280gm=196gm=0.196kgTherefore, quantity of tomato sauce in a jar =10100×280gm=28gm=0.028kgTherefore, quantity of tomato paste in a jar =20100×280gm=56gm=0.056kgThe price per kilo of whole tomatoes, tomato sauce and tomato paste are€0.96, €0.64 and €0.56respectively.Therefore, cost of whole tomatoes in a jar = € (0.196×0.96) =€0.19Therefore, cost of tomato sauce in a jar = € (0.028×0.64) =€0.02Therefore, cost of tomato paste in a jar = € (0.056×0.56) =€0.03The cost of spices and other ingredients = €0.10
