Meet The $141 Billion Chocolate Family

We all know about Snickers, Milky Way bars, M&Ms, and skittles, but do you know about the company behind them? All of these popular candy brands are owned by Mars Inc which is one of the largest privately-owned companies in the world. Not only is Mars Inc private, but's the company is almost completely owned by the founding family. Today, the Mars heirs add up to 6 individuals who are all decabillionaries. Together, their net worth comes in at over $140 billion. But this massive fortune wasn't just built up overnight. Mars Inc was founded way back in June of 1911 by Franklin Clarence Mars and his wife Ethel Healy. The company was then passed down to his son Forest who grew the up-and-coming chocolate company into an international giant. Forest then passed down the company to his three children, and these three children are now passing down the company to their children. This video tells the story of how Mars Inc was built over 4 generations and how the Mars family became the wealthiest family in the world.
