Mustard oil is very popular in the Indian subcontinent and other parts of Asia. It has many health benefits, including being a stimulant, antifungal and insect repellent. Its natural qualities are now attracting interest in the European and American markets, which makes mustard oil a potentially lucrative product to produce and sell. The oil per seed also has a high yield. 

If you are considering starting a mustard oil manufacturing business, then you need a mustard oil manufacturing business plan. On this page, ABC Machinery will guide you step by step.

How to start a mustard oil manufacturing business

Step 1: Develop a business plan: a simple start

If this is the first business plan you want to write, start with a simple business mechanism. There are some related questions in your plan:
  • Do you have to produce mustard oil or are you going to buy it? 
  • Where will you source mustard seeds?
  • Do you have a mustard oil extraction plant? Do I still need to rent one?
  • Who will be your customer, end user or refinery?
 Before proceeding, please have clear answers to these questions.

Step 2: Site selection: not too big

You definitely need a physical location to produce or store mustard oil and raw materials. 
As a successful startup, you need to keep costs low. If you can work from home, then do it.
You will save a lot of money and save the pressure of finding a suitable location. The money you save can be used for marketing or transportation in the future.

Step 3: Find the market: Find the market closest to you

According to the distribution channels, the mustard oil market is divided into retail markets, supermarkets and department stores. Of all these, the retail market accounts for the highest profit. Therefore, the closer the mustard oil market is to scale, the easier it is for you to sell mustard oil. If you need to travel far away or the market is scattered, selling products to them will make you spend more money. Talk to your neighbors to find out how much mustard oil they buy in a month. In this way, you can determine how big the nearest market is.

To build a mustard oil manufacturing business, you need a place that can hold all the machinery, raw materials, products, and other similar items. The price of the property (by region or country).
