    1. Start Pure Water Production Business in Nigeria. How to Start Sachet & Bottled Water

      Pure Water Production Business In Nigeria: How to start A Sachet And Bottled Water Production Business. Sachet Water is one of the products out there that is in high demand. Hundreds of millions of sachets are consumed everyday, and the demand of Pure Water supply is always on the rise as the population keeps increasing. Go to any major city in Nigerian, you'll see how the streets are littered with empty sachets of pure water which is the testimony to the quantity that is consumed everyday.




      A clever investor knows that the best product to deal on is the product in high demand, that automatically placed pure water production business "Investors Choice" any time. The demand doesn't seems to go down rather soon as it has become the most credible alternative means of getting anything close to clean drinkable water for the average Nigerian. Therefore, how do you cash in on the demand of sachet water to create a living for yourself?


      The business of pure water production is quite simple, and here I'm going to run down the step by step guide how anybody who is keen on this industry can get started easily without much stress. In water business just like every other business, the number one priority should be service to humanity then, the money will come naturally. Like any other consumables, life is involved so try and put everything in place properly. Here are the things necessary to get started:


      1. Get a place of business - you need to acquire a property or rent a place, getting your own property and developing it's the most desirable option as that will save you cost in the long run.

      2. Register your business name - The name your water products will be known for. Branding is vital in business, so in addition to your business name, design a very specialist logo for your product because perception is the most desireble sales man. Make your brand stands out among others!


      3. Sink a Borehole - The most common source of water for commercial drinking water production like sachet water and bottled water is borehole, let there be borehole within your premises for constant water supply to your pure water production factory.


      4. Install Overhead Tanks - This will serves as reservoir to supply water to the distillation system, it must be overhead to ensure proper pressure to be able to pump down the distillation chamber.


      5. Install Distillation systems - This could just be a micro filters and cup filters depending on your start up capacity, but if you can afford it, then you go for more comprehensive distillation paradigm. Otherwise, use Purification process known as Ultra Violet sterilization bulbs process. After distillation, you want to take your product (the resultant water) to the laboratory for results.


      6. Get NAFDAC Approved - NAFDAC Is the agency that supervise foods and drugs in Nigeria, you need their approval to carry out business that involved consumable products of which water is one of them.


      7. Acquire Automatic Sealing Machine - Automatic sealing machine cost between N400,000 to a Million Naira. Go for the ones that seals or produces about 40 sachets per minute.


      8. Employ Staffs - You will need minimum of five persons to work in your factory in the beginning then increase with time as the demand may be.


      9. Distribution Mechanism - buy truck for your distribution of rent but renting can be expensive and disappointing most of the times. My recommendation is that you buy your own truck if you can afford it at first.


      10. Get Power Generation - You know the predicament of power supply in Nigeria, except if things changes tomorrow. If not, you will need a standby power generating set, and 25KVA will be just perfect for the job.


      With all these in place, you are good to go! in the beginning up and in close correlation with what you already have like land and other things, you might need up to five million naira at the beginning up to be certainly sure to get the sealing machines, nylon and other materials, and pay for labour for about some months before it begin to yield profits. Your cost could be higher if you are also paying for rent and hiring trucks.
