The company’s owner, Anders Holch Povlsen, is Denmark’s wealthiest man.


The billionaire holds the title of Britain’s second-largest private landowner, with 12 Scottish estates


Povlsen is known in Europe for his passion for overhauling uncultivated areas under his ownership. Last year, he announced an ambitious “200-year plan” to rewild vast terrains of the Scottish Highlands. The billionaire announced a similar plan in Romania’s Carpathian Mountains. Povlsen’s plans include reintroducing wolves, bears, and lynx back to where they have been pushed out by man.
