Soya Bean Products Company Kenya(SBPCK)

Published on May 31, 2014 um 10:03

Summary of your idea

SBPCK will be dealing in manufaturing using soya beans and maize grains as raw materials. Soya bean is chosen beacuse it does well in the area that the company will be located and it is compately utilized in the process to yield desired products. The products of the company will be: Soy-maize blended flour, soy-coffee, soy-oil, soy-biodiesel and soaps. The objectives of the comapny are: To provide nutritious product(food) to its customers .To prevent air,water and land pollution.To provide sustainable energy(biodiesel).

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

The company is targeting the low-income earners, vegeterians, people who are suffering from certain diseases like diabetic persons, HIV/AIDS infected people, those that are allergic to animal proteins(meat and milk).This will be for the following products soy-coffee, soy-oil, soaps and soy-maize blended flour. This makes my company to have large ready market for its products thus will enable it penetrate the market with easy. In processing the company will employ use of SHS(Switchable Hydrophilicity Solvent) as the method of extraction of the oil. This enables the company to have advantage over my competitors which employ the use of hexane(solvent extraction) and mechanical which are hazardous, carcinogenic(for hexane) and energy extensive for mechanical process. This also enables my customers to develop trust in my products thus easy penetration of the market. Due to high dependency rate on the non-renewable source of energy(petroleum fuels), my company will be producing biodiesel from soya oil which is clean sustainable source of energy. This will conserve the environment(prevent air pollution).

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The company will require initial start-up capital of ksh 500,000 Kenya shillings thereafter it will depend on its own through sales of its products.In which in the first manufacturing the company will generate enough income. This will enable the company make good profit after factor in all the expenses. This will enable the company to expand its production to target the large population of Kenya and other eastern countries of Africa. The company will organize promotions on its products to boosts its sales. it will also conduct seminars to farmers on the best ways to grow soya beans, this will enable the company receive continuous supply of the raw material.The employees of the company will be allowed to develop their leadership skills thus this will motivate them thus quality services they will offer to the company.Hence the success of the business.

Your profile

I'm Paul Odhiambo, 25 years old from Kenya, having a degree in bachelor of science in industrial chemistry. In 2013 May to September I carried out a project on vegetable blended biodiesel which I applied in domestic heating and lightening which was sucessful and this inspired me alot and gave birth to this idea of venturing in the business of manufacturing of biodiesel.
