    Does anybody know if it is possible to apply ABC principles to the food service industry where the product is perishable?

    It would certainly give you a good indication of the full cost of each
    product irrespective of whether it is perishable or not. Just because all
    the costs are expensed in the case of perishable food does not bar them from
    being allocated to products based on activity.
