The Mysterious Mars Family
Origins - Burgundy, France

Original spelling Mare - meaning ram

Coat of Arms - 3 upside down sea shells

List of Mars's family fortune as of March 5, 2008 published by Forbes.

* Forrest Edward Mars, Jr. US$14.0 billion
* Jacqueline Mars US$14.0 billion
* John Mars US$14.0 billion
* Total: US$42.0 billion

The family was called the richest family in America by Fortune magazine in 1988

The family is fiercely protective of their privacy

The company is entirely owned by the Mars family, making it one of the largest privately owned U.S. corporations.

Mars, Incorporated is headquartered in McLean, Virginia.

The European Division, is headquartered in Brussels, Belgium and was known as Masterfoods Europe until the end of 2007.

Mars has come under criticism by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals for funding animal tests which the group alleges are inhumane, including a study regarding angiogenesis and spatial memory in which mice were force fed catechins, a candy ingredient, compelled to swim in paint, then dissected.[20] Other experiments involved life-threatening cardiac puncture of mice with inadequate anesthesia.

Forrest Edward Mars also spent time working with Nestlé.

Nestlé, is listed as one of the 14 most evil corporations in the world.

Nestle is also notorious for its aggressive marketing of infant formula in poor countries in the 1980s. Because of this practice, Nestle is still one of the most boycotted corporations in the world, and its infant formula is still controversial. In Italy in 2005, police seized more than two million liters of Nestle infant formula that was contaminated with the chemical isopropylthioxanthone (ITX).

In Israel chocolate and coffee sales are domestic-owned monopolies. It's illegal but the company Strauss-Elite willingly pays a penality every year to maintain it's business.

Candy cartel? Nestle, Mars accused of price-fixing
BY LAUREN KRUGEL, THE CANADIAN PRESS JUNE 7, 2013

"Canada's Competition Bureau has levelled charges of conspiracy and price fixing against three major players in the confectionary market that could land senior executives in jail and cost the companies millions of dollars in fines.

The charges are against Nestle Canada Inc., Mars Canada Inc. and ITWAL Ltd., a network of independent wholesale distributors.
-snip-
The companies and individuals are accused of conspiracy under the Competition Act.

Mars, the maker of Snickers, Twix and M&M's, and Nestle, whose candy bars include Coffee Crisp, Kit Kat and Aero, both said in separate statements that they intend to "vigorously defend" themselves against the charges. Both said the allegations date back to 2007 and earlier."
