We operate a medium sized chocolate business in a tourist town in the very south of Western Australia. We have been trading for nearly two years and have enjoyed the challenge. Despite good turnover it'sa struggle to get a return on the investment.
A major factor is the cost of couverture in Australia.A 10kg bag of Callebaut willcost around $180 inAustralia whereaswe understandin the UK it would be about fifty five pounds and in the US around eightydollars(US).
So why is it more thantwice the price in Oz? Could it be that onlyonecompany has the import rights?Has anyone managed to get a better deal on other brands?
