BIOGRAPHY

Birgit Rausing & family was bornon 1919 in Sweden. She and her 3 children inherited packaging giant Tetra Laval after her husband's death in 2000. The $12 billion (sales) company's breakthrough aseptic ­packaging technology makes it possible to store beverages like milk and orange juice without refrigeration; some criticize the ­innovation for being difficult to recycle. All of her children sit on Tetra Laval's board; son Jörn is head of mergers and acquisitions. Son Finn is chairman of the board of the Swedish R.R. Institute of Applied Economics. Daughter Kirsten is a horse breeder in the U.K. The family keeps a low profile, which may have something to do with the 1989 attempted kidnapping of Jörn.
