Specialized in the production and marketing of soap made from local products, the Savonnerie Parfumerie du Houet (SPH) has reached a new stage in its development with the opening of a new production factory in Bobo-Dioulasso. The inauguration of this new factory took place this Thursday, November 25, 2021 in the economic capital of Burkina Faso.




The opening of the SPH factory was a succession of steps:

"This soap factory was first an artisanal business. I started my business in my own kitchen, then from the kitchen I moved to the living room, then to the yard, and then I realized that we had to get out of the house and here we are. I started this business exactly 25 years ago and for this birthday we are opening our own production unit".

Moumouni KONATE, General Director of SPH


This inauguration took place in the presence of the High Patronage of the Prime Minister of Burkina Faso, the Co-Chairman of the Minister of Finance and Development, the Minister of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts, the CEO of Coris Holding and Sinergi Burkina, shareholder of SPH since October 2020 through the IPDEV 2 fund.

"Mr. KONATE is a man of vision and it is his vision that convinced us to accompany him. We wish him every success in the future."
