Abstract In Spain, the activity of the industry that produced sugar from beetroot began in 1883. A few years later, in 1890, the Sociedad Azucarera Antequera was founded in the municipality of Antequera, located in the region of Andalusia, with the aim of responding to the growing demand for that product and the agrarian crisis of the end of the century. In 1900–1901 the sugar factory of Azucarera Antequerana added 5.8% of the national production, meaning that it was one of the most important in the country, production that reached consumers through an effective network created by the company to sell sugar.
