In 2018, it was estimated that Australians would spend close to $210 million on chocolate during Easter. Needless to say, retail and food industries reap tremendous benefits from this holiday.

However, with a well-thought-through marketing strategy, there are plenty of opportunities for businesses in less obvious industries to also hop on the band-wagon.
