So it's that time of year again.
When the beet is taken to Cantley.
Cantley is well known for its sugar beet factory, the first sugar beet processing factory in the UK, constructed in 1912. It is now owned by British Sugar. It is one of only four factories responsible for processing all of the UK's sugar beet crop. In 2008-09 the factory featured in the local press regarding a planning application to expand the site to allow it to produce cane sugar from raw materials sourced from developing countries. The factory also supports the local community with many projects, most recently providing part funding for the reconstruction of the village staithe and moorings on the river Yare.
