How many batchs do big shampoo brands produce per month regularly?

Currently i make 2 or 3 batchs of shampoo per week. My plan is to increase the  quantity in each batch so i make only one batch a month but making that big batch looka to have it's own problems.

So i wanted to know how how many batch do big or medium brands of shampoo make in a month in regular times?

    The manufacturer I worked for sold VO5 shampoo, about 40 million units a year.  I think we would make about 10 batches of 2 or 3000 gallons a day.
  • @Perry thanks 

    So were they sanitizing and cleaning the tank after each batch or not?


    Were they making about 10 batches in 10 production lines, one batch each or were they making 10 batches in one line and machine?

    We had 5 tanks, 2 batches a day. If they were making the same flavor of shampoo, they just rinsed out the container & made another batch on top

    Large manufacturers can also use continuous production. 
    Also consider the efficiency of op's -  that big concerns have few manufacturing plants and run these 24/7/365
