Baking biscuits


In this business plan, we propose the creation of a biscuit baking company in Africa. Our mission is to provide high-quality and affordable biscuits to customers, while supporting local farmers and communities. The demand for biscuits in Africa is growing as the population continues to increase, and there is a significant gap in the market for a company that focuses on using locally sourced, high-quality ingredients.

Market Analysis:

The biscuit market in Africa is currently worth an estimated $1.5 billion and is growing at a rate of 5% per year. There is a growing demand for biscuits as a snack food and for use in home baking. Additionally, there is a growing awareness among consumers of the importance of healthy, locally sourced ingredients. This presents an opportunity for our company to differentiate itself from existing players in the market.

Products and Services:

Our company will produce a range of biscuits, including traditional favorites like chocolate chip and shortbread, as well as healthier options like oat and whole grain biscuits. We will source our ingredients from local farmers, where possible, to support the local economy and reduce our carbon footprint. Our biscuits will be sold in local supermarkets, convenience stores, and online.

Marketing Strategy:

Our marketing strategy will focus on promoting the high-quality, locally sourced ingredients that set our biscuits apart from those of our competitors. We will also target health-conscious consumers who are looking for healthier snack options. Additionally, we will engage in local community initiatives, such as sponsoring local sports teams, to raise awareness of our brand and build a positive reputation in the community.


Our biscuit baking facility will be located in a rural area, close to local farmers and with easy access to major transportation routes. This will allow us to source our ingredients locally and efficiently transport our finished products to customers. Our production process will be automated to ensure consistency and efficiency, while still allowing for the personal touch of hand-decorating some of our specialty biscuits.

Financial Projections:

Our company is forecasting revenue of $5000 in the first year, with steady growth to $100000  by the end of the fifth year. Our profit margins will be in line with industry averages, and we will use our profits to reinvest in the business, pay dividends to investors, and support local community initiatives.


The demand for biscuits in Africa is growing, and there is a significant gap in the market for a company that focuses on using high-quality, locally sourced ingredients. With a strong marketing strategy, efficient operations, and a commitment to supporting local communities, we are confident that our biscuit baking company will be a success.
