Direct Materials Purchases budget for Soda Company

The Soda Company dilutes and mixes the concentrate with carbonated water and then fills the blended beverage into cans or plastic two-liter bottles. Assume that the estimated production for Brand 1 and Brand 2 two-liter bottles are as follows for the month of March:

Brand 1 37,000 two-liter bottles
Brand 2 28,000 two-liter bottles

In addition, assume that the concentrate costs $81 per pound for both Brand 1 and Brand 2 and is used at a rate of 0.2 pound per 100 liters of carbonated water in blending Brand 1 and 0.25 pound per 100 liters of carbonated water in blending Brand 2. Assume that two liter bottles cost $0.09 per bottle and carbonated water costs $0.07 per liter.

Prepare a direct materials purchases budget for March 2010, assuming no changes between beginning and ending inventories for all three materials.
