Around 1900, De Betuwe was one of the first companies to produce apple syrup in addition to jam and jelly.
Farmers from the Betuwe landed sugar beets in the autumn. These were weighed on the weighbridge on the Grote Brugse Grintweg.
The sugar beets ended up in a large storage heap after which they were cleaned in the factory. They were cut into pieces, cooked and pressed on heavy machines. The juice was filtered and thickened under vacuum.
Apples received a similar treatment.
Apple syrup was made from the concentrated sugar solution from the sugar beet and the concentrated apple juice. CONPURA appears on the cans of the apple syrup (and pear syrup). Conpura stands for: Concentrated Pure Apple Juice.
Flipje is a fictional figure who serves as a mascot, originally from the jam factory "De Betuwe" and nowadays the mascot of the city of Tiel. It was invented in 1935. In Tiel he is among other things honoured with a museum, a statue and comic strips on benches in them around the center of the city.
