Brief Description: Display rack of imported Huntley & Palmers biscuits in New York
Subject Date: 1950s
Creator: Conrad Studios
 
Full Description: Huntley & Palmers first American account was opened in 1854. By 1906 the company's products accounted for 94% of British biscuit exports to the USA. Despite this high market share, US sales only accounted for 5.3% of Huntley & Palmers overseas trade. The Far East was Huntley & Palmers most important overseas market with 35% of total overseas trade. However, in the aftermath of the Second World War, importing countries began to increase their import tariffs. By 1967 Huntley & Palmers traditional markets in India and Burma had vanished and a third of all exports were to the USA.
