The Story of Mars began in 1911 when Frank C. Mars made the first Mars candies in his Tacoma, Washington kitchen. In the 1920s, Forrest E. Mars, Sr. joined his father in business and together they launched the MILKY WAY® bar. In 1932, Forrest, Sr. moved to the United Kingdom with a dream of building a business based on the objective of creating a "mutuality of benefits for all stakeholders" -- this objective serves as the foundation of Mars, Incorporated today.
Mars, Incorporated is a leading food manufacturer and one of the largest privately owned businesses in the world.
