Why do I need to blanch potatoes and how long does it take? What is the frying time and so on? Among these many questions, the input-output ratio of potato chips is the one that our customers ask us the most, and it is also the most important factor related to the customer's input cost and profit.

According to the above input-output ratio of potatoes, we assume that the price of potatoes is 0.5RMB/KG, assuming that 1000kg of potatoes are put into production, and it takes 10 days to process 100kg a day. Then the input cost of potatoes is 500RMB. 1000kg potatoes can be produced Produce 300kg potato chips. Assuming that the price of potato chips on the market is 3RMB/kg, then 300kg of potato chips can get 900RMB. Excluding the purchase cost of the potato chips manufacturing process line, within 10 days, you can get a profit of 400RMB. Therefore, you can make a profit in a short period of time.
