Brenda Salters

Salters and her family stepped into the shoes of her late husband Geoff in 2009 and assumed control of just over half of SHS Group. A £9m (€10.1m) dividend paid out to shareholders, added to a small jump in profits, increased the family's wealth even further this year. The business also boasts Meridian Peanut Butter and Zip Firelighters among its stable. Meridian has become very popular in the health food sector and uses no palm oil in the production of its products.
