2 Sisters owners Ranjit and Baljinder Boparan rose up the rankings of this year’s Sunday Times Rich List, boosted by their recent purchase of Bernard Mathews.
The Boparans ranked 227th on this year’s list, up from 267th last year. The pair was worth £544M, a jump of £114M since the last Rich List.
Rutland Partner’s sale of Bernard Matthews to Boparan Private Office drew criticism from the Work and Pensions Committee. The Committee claimed Rutland was more interest in lining its own pockets than the welfare of Bernard Matthews’ workers.
