Huds and Toke are continuing their USA expansion strategy with the help of Trade and Invest Queensland.
After a torrid time with COVID-19 hitting just as Huds and Toke expanded into the USA a few years ago, we had to withdraw from the market because of logistic issues.

As such, now is a better time to revisit this expansion strategy and with the help of TIQ the chance of success is greatly increased.
