Hans Riegel

Hans Riegel is the 32nd richest person in Germany with an estimated net worth of $2.9 billion. He is known as the Gummi Bear billionaire and surprisingly his candy business, the Haribo Candy Company, has grown steadily over the years although the economy is somewhat down in whole of Europe. His net worth has climbed up by a massive $600 million due to the huge sales it has recorded last year. 

Hans Riegel, to his credit, has invented more than 200 sweets including the highly popular Gummi Bears and Maoam fruit chewies. He has always claimed that he gets inspiration from the comic books and by watching movies that are meant for children. The candies are all produced by the Haribo Candy Company which is totally family owned and always remains tight-lipped about disclosing its revenues. 

Hans now owns 50% of the company and he is in charge of marketing. The other half is owned by his brother Paul’s son, Hans Guido Riegel. He is the head of the production and also looks after the technical department. The two other sons of Paul, Hans Juergen Riegel & Hans Arndt Riegel, sit on the supervisory board.
