Let Us Crunch a Bit!

Posted on December 15, 2010 by team


This is a plant of PepsiCo, where chips Lay’s are produced. It has been opened recently in the city Azov of Rostov region. Let’s go over the whole sequence of production.

Uploading, washing and temporary storing of potato

Daily about nine 20-tonned trucks are discharged here. Then via the belt potatoes go to the washing machine, where they are cleaned by recycling water. There are just three such automatic washers in the world. Washing goes in a closed tank and is impossible to be photographed. Then potatoes go to the bins for temporary storing and are taken from them to production when needed.

Peeling, assortment and cutting potato

Before potatoes go to the cutting machine workers check if there are any defects on the vegetables or not. If there are some they are cut out.

There are special sorts of potato, which are acceptable for chips-making, such sorts have higher content of starch.

    Hmm, chips Lay’s are produced in our Russia. Cool! How about chips Estrella of Kraft Foods? I prefer chips Estrella with dill sometimes. It would be nice if they too were manufactured in Russia.

    “potatoes go to the washing machine, where they are cleaned by recycling water. There are just three such automatic washers in the world”

    I can inform you that this is probably untrue. I work in potato factory in England. We have the same thing here, using completely recycled water in a rotary washing system with built in drying rollers. Removes about 95% or greater of earth etc. This is nothing special for this industry.

    Potato chips are one of the worst things in the world you can eat. I wish they didn’t taste so good. Why hasn’t science invented a vitamin fortified potato chip yet?

  9. OLUT says:

    What a coincidence, I ate Lay’s chips and drank Pepsi for dinner last night!

    Clean, efficient, productive. You sure this was in Russia? It isn’t abandoned.

  11. George Johnson says:

    I like Pepsi better than Coke.

    best chips are ‘better made’ – made here in detroit. ask for them – we could use some more employees. glad somebody is working, though, wherever they are.

  13. Papa Karlo says:

    “The very “heart” of chips production line – a frying bath. The whole world has no analogous equipment, it has been made specially for PepsiCo and forbidden to be shown.”
    I suspect that the reason for this is that Lay’s chips are formed of potato flower, not from real cut potatoes, that’s what they don’t want anybody to see.
