Sugar beet field
A big sugar beet field near Alby in rural Österhaninge. There are not too many farmers in this part of Sweden who grows these beets. Just three percent of these beets are grown outside of Skåne in the south of the country. But we do have the big Coca-Cola plant nearby in Jordbro. They always tell us that they will use locally produced cultivators, and as this is the same sugar that you get from the sugarcane, chances are that it will be used to make Coca-Cola.
