Packaging Success Stories of Australia’s Biggest Chocolate Brands

As more and more Australians develop a taste for high quality artisan chocolate, more brands are entering the market and finding their ways into stores, and into the mouths of chocolate lovers.

Manufacturing and selling chocolate in Australia actually holds many challenges for chocolatiers, including:

– Temperate extremes with Australia’s varied climate
– Shipping over large distances between capital cities
– Demand for various sizes and formats of chocolates from small health food stores to large chain supermarkets
– Capital costs associated with packaging multi products in small runs due to Australia’s relatively small population
