First the kind of equipment required for a SMALL SCALE industry, Staffing, Production Processes including ingredients, packaging up to the biscuit we see and buy in the market

Hi Cj, 

Do you already know which products you want to produce? As biscuits are like many other categories have a vast array of different types and products you are well of choosing a few which you would like to do.

You could look at the articles we have posted elsewhere here to guide you through this process, but next to products your filosophy can make a difference and with that a great USP (the storytelling bit)

I am working elsewhere with a guy where he first choose 1 category and we're now (after nearly 2 years) working on the 4th category he will introduce.... so take your time and do one thing well!

Congratulation !
As I am seeing the tremendous growth of biscuit consumption in Nigeria, I feel you are taking a good initiative for successful business.
Starting a business or factory is a challenge, but thorough homework helps.
You can start this ways,
1. Start from the market, find the varieties moving best.
2. Check the rates, segments and what are the margins
3. Pick 2 types from the fastest moving varieties with good margin
4. Plan for the project with some professionals, expert on this field.
5. Draw out a plan with clear time frame and
6. Start the project.

Wish you best of luck...
