Transcript of What Drove the Sugar Trade?

What Drove the Sugar Trade?
The sugar trade was driven by three factors: location, consumer demand, the Slave Trade, and complementary industries.

Document A shows that Britain had the ideal amount of land for growing sugar.
Document B shows that Britain's land in the Caribbean had the ideal climate for growing.
This shows that Britain was capable of producing large amounts of sugar.
The Hogshead shown in Document C represents the large demand for sugar.
This document shows that sugar became so popular that people began to worry about its effects

As a result, when sugar was discovered and used in these industries, the people became more reliant on the sugar trade.
This document shows that the cheapness of labor made sugar production possible.
