Kirsten Rausing
Billionaire Heiress of tetra Pak

Kirsten Rausing is one of the richest businesswoman in Sweden and she has an estimated net worth of $5.1 billion She was born to a very rich Swedish family as her father Gad Rausing is a noted industrialist and her grand-father, Ruben Rausing, was the founder of the world’s largest liquid packaging company, Tetra Pak. When her father took over the 50% stake in the company from his brother, Hans, the immediate family members became the remaining owners of this company. 

Kirsten entered the list of billionaires only when their mother left her fortune to her children including Kirsten. Now she along with her two brothers, Finn & Jorn, sit on the board of the company. It must be noted that Tetra Pak came into prominence as they successfully came out with a liquid packaging technology by which you can keep beverages like milk and juices without any refrigeration. The technology has been subjected to criticism from certain quarters as there is little scope for recycling. 

On the personal front Kirsten is the proud owner of two stud farms in Suffolk and is very passionate about horse racing. Her company has achieved tremendous growth in the Far East and is now worth more than 7 billion GBP. She maintains a very low profile which is part of the family decision after a failed kidnapping attempt on her brother, Jorn, in 1989.
