Ranjit Singh Boparan
According to a report from 2012: "Ranjit Boparan’s wealth soared by £475m last year after snapping up Northern Foods. He and wife Baljinder leapt 174 places in the latest Sunday Times Rich List to joint 101st after amassing an estimated wealth of £750m in 2011. "Through Boparan Holdings, the couple own Northern Foods, 2 Sisters and the Harry Ramsden fish and chip shop chain." 
According to a Guardian article from 2011: "A more secretive businessman would be hard to find; Boparan insists on a low public profile and "doesn't do interviews with the media", one adviser says bluntly. His personal fortune is estimated at £100m... Accounts filed by 2 Sisters at Companies House show profits rose by a third in 2009 to nearly £34m with turnover increasing from £500m to £580m – not bad going in a sharp economic downturn. The accounts show that Boparan paid himself and his wife a £12m dividend, compared with the £11m he awarded himself a year earlier."
