I don't want to be too specific with numbers, as there are not alot of french fry factories out there. We go through more than 25 semi trailers a day full of potatoes.

Blanching them is the biggest process that isn't usually done at home.

It's actually more secretive than you'd think because potato making is a highly capital intensive process, and most of the fries in the world are made by private companies.

There's multiple ways they are cut. The coolest way is the potatoes basically go down a waterslide(flume) which keeps getting smaller and smaller. When it reaches near the end the pressure shoots them through a tube faster than you can see which has blades in whatever pattern of fry they're making.
