France is Europe's third largest soap producer, sharing 90% of European soap production with the UK and Germany.


This explains why opening a soap factory attracts so many entrepreneurs to France.


However, before embarking on an entrepreneurial adventure by opening a soap business, it is highly advisable to draw up a business plan and enroll in professional training.

This will enable you to establish your business growth strategy by considering, for example, the start-up budget, competitive analysis, turnover, performance indicators, and future profits from your soap-making business.

What's more, your business plan can be used as a basis if you are planning to apply for finance from a financial institution.



What elements should be included in my business plan?

Is there a template I can follow?

How do I calculate my turnover?

What financial tables should be included in the business plan?

How do I calculate my business break-even point?


We provide the answers in this article.
