    In March 1870 a meeting was held at Mount Gambier of persons interested in sugar beet cultivation, but it was not until 8 July 1871 at a gathering of interested persons in the Gambier West Council Chamber that it was stated that promises had been obtained for 2,000 shares to be taken up in the proposed company. Accordingly, a prospectus was issued on 19 July 1871 for the Mount Gambier Beet Sugar Company Limited with a nominal capital of 10,000 the promoters being C. Fidler, N.A. Lord, A.F. Barrett, A.W McGregor, E.H. Derrington, W. Paltridge, J. Frew, T. Williams, C. Clark, J.K. Bors and C. Engelbrecht. The governemnt of South Australia voted 1,000 as a bonus for the first 100 tons of sugar manufactured in the colony, while the Secretary of the Sugar Beet Committee offered 5 towards tha analysing of sugar beet grown in the district.

    A favourable letter was received in respect of the progress of a Melbourne company and it was resolved to distribute a quantity of pure beet seed among the shareholders and, accordingly, about 60 acres of sugar beet were planted in the 1871 season. Later, a sample of sugar was sent to Melbourne for analysis and yields from 5 to 11 lbs. per hundredweight were reported and this result was deemed to be very favourable when compared with sugar beet produced in European countries. To assist in getting the infant industry off the ground a local farmer, Mr J.F. Hirth, said he was anxious to see a manufacturing plant established and prepared to place at its disposal from 20 to 40 acres of first class land for beet growing and to lease up to10 acres for the erection of a factory, while the Editor of the Border Watch was of the opinion that:.

    Our soil is becoming exhausted and foul - a crop is wanted that will yield something like a fair return for putting the land in heart again and getting rid of the weeds. It now looks as if it were to be - beet and prosperity and progress; or no beet, and the gradual abandonment of agricultural operations.

    Unfortunately within 15 months the scheme had collapsed and:

    Therefore, in October 1872 the company was wound up and, having a final tilt at inherent foibles within management, the Border Watch proclaimed that:

    For the remainder of the 19th century the press is silent but, in 1912 at a public meeting in Mount Gambier, it was resolved to seek the assistance of the local branch of the Agricultural Bureau in planting experimental plots and, by 1921, they were established at Millicent and Penola and proved so successful that the construction of a factory was mooted.

Accordingly, the company distributed chicory seed to interested parties and in 1888 a cultivator of Rendelsham reported that:

    The production of pure chicory for the colonial markets was of incalculable benefit and The Advertiser published a summary of the industry's progress in January 1893:

    At the same time it was announced that Mr Carr had decided to embark on the manufacture of "dandelion coffee" and to this end planted an acre or two of land near Millicent with the dandelion "familiar to the sight of us Australians" and was "complimented on the quality of the chicory they have recently placed before the public through their agents, Messrs Bickford & Co., Adelaide."
