Two Of The World’s Most Powerful Billionaires Live In Montana
Montana Billionaires Live In Secret
If you were a billionaire would you want everyone to know about it, or would you quietly go about your day?
These two powerful billionaires are part of a family of billionaires that includes 14 people with a worth of over a billion dollars.
That is more billionaires in a single family than any other family on Earth.
These two billionaires are so secretive, that in trying to find a picture of them online my search came up empty.
Who Are The Powerful Billionaires Living In Montana?
I came across this Forbes article entitled "Reclusive Rich: Meet the world's secretive billionaires who give stealth wealth a whole new meaning."
While that article doesn't mention the two billionaires in Montana by name, they did mention a certain family name that made me remember that two of their family members call Montana home.
Who Are The Cargill Family and How Did They Make Their Fortune?
While you might not know the Cargill name by heart, you probably have eaten something from their empire.
From another Forbes article profiling the Cargill Family,
Whatever you ate or drank today — a candy bar, pretzels, soup from a can, ice cream, yogurt, chewing gum, beer — chances are it included a little something from Cargill's menu of food additives.
Its $50 billion "ingredients" business touches pretty much anything salted, sweetened, preserved, fortified, emulsified, or texturized, or anything whose raw taste or smell had to be masked in order to make it palatable.
It's crazy to think these two people are part of a family that are responsible for so much of what we eat every day, and we don't even know what they look like.
That's the power of being a billionaire I guess.
