More important: is the question about how many more kg of product would be made *in 5 minutes*, or *in 30 minutes* if you continued increasing past the 5 minutes, or in 30 minutes if it reached 3000 kg/h after 5 minutes and then *stayed at 3000*, or what???

But once the problem is clear, it appears to be a uniform acceleration problem, which can be solved using simple calculus, or using a simple formula one might learn in physics. It could also be done graphically, by geometrically finding the area under a graph.

Can you tell us your background in these areas, and if this is a problem for a class, what you have learned that might be relevant? If it is not related to a class, then what is the context?
