10. Place longganisa in polyetheylene plastic bag in ¼ or ½ kg. packages. Remove the trapped air inside the bag and seal immediately.
11. Store in freezer.
12. Double the amount of ingredients for the 2 kls. of longganisa.
After mixing all ingredients to the 1 kg. meat, the yield of the finished product would weigh 1.4 kgs.

If price per kilogram is lower compared with the existing market price, increase mark-up to more than 10%.
