Hi there, @useraccounts5.
For you to link a product to multiple purchase products, you can use a Bundle item. It is a combination of multiple or Group items you often sell together into Bundles so you can easily add multiple items to transactions.
Here's how to create a bundle item:
I added a screenshot for visual reference.
Here's an article you can read to learn more about bundles: Change Product and Service Types.
You can also use this article as a future reference if you want to apply a bundle item in the invoice: Add bundle item to invoice.

Thank you for your response.
But I don't think that bundle will be ideal as I cannot provide sales price for each item in the bundle. For example, if I have a beetroot salad with walnuts I sell the whole salad £4 and I don't have separate prices for beetroots, olive oil, salt etc that I have used to create my final product.
I think that I will use non-stock items for those I sell, and either stock (so I can track my inventory) or non-stock (I will post an adj. journal every month after the stock count) for purchases.
Do you think that this is a good idea?
Thank you for getting back, @useraccounts5.
Yes, it is okay to use non-stock or stock items to track the products, then adjust the stock count through a journal entry if you didn't track COGS for your inventories. If you did, you need to manually adjust the inventory by reducing the materials used and increasing the finished product.
