Robert Barber was originally an apprentice in the motor industry but moved into Insurance . He is giving us a talk on the HISTORY OF SUGAR AND THE KIDDERMINSTER FACTORY. This is a look at how the manufacture of sugar began 5000 years ago and its spread throughout the world including the horrors of slavery. It finishes with the Sugar Factory in Kidderminster and its campaign for building it in the late 19th century and why it did not materialise until the 1920’s.
