Abstract At the beginning of the twentieth century there were more than 30 Sugar factories. Now there remain only two, one in Groningen (Hoogkerk) and the other in Noord-Brabant (Dinteloord). This means that beets must be transported over long distances. Transport costs make up about 50% of the total expenses of the beet refining process, even though transport has been optimized extensively. With the expected rise of energy prices, centralized processing will become significantly more expensive.
