Benjamin Delessert

(1773-1847)

Benjamin Delessert was a French industrialist who had a sugar refinery, in Paris. In 1812 he developed the first commercially successful process to extract sugar from sugar beets. He received major financial support from Napoleon because the British blockade had cut off France's access to raw sugar from the West Indies. By 1814, 40 factories had been built to process beet sugar in Europe.
