Question

Souter Corporation produces two types of juice that it packages in cases of 24 cans per case. Selected per-case data for the two products for the last month follow.


Souter allocates production overhead using activity-based costing but allocates monthly packaging expense, which amounted to $60,000 last month, to the two products equally.

Required
a. Compute the net profit for each product.
b. Assuming that the overhead allocation for the tomato juice includes $30,000 of facility-level costs, would you advise Souter to eliminate this product?
