A $500m Question: What’s William the Conqueror’s Cousin Got to do with FoodTech?
If you’ve ever walked the streets of Central London, you’ve probably walked those belonging to the Grosvenor family, particularly if you headed to London’s most upmarket neighborhoods. Many of the streets and squares of Mayfair and Belgravia are named after the family, and you may have even stayed at the Grosvenor Hotel — hopefully at someone else’s expense! A household name in the UK, the Grosvenor family can trace its ancestry back to William the Conqueror’s cousin and today Hugh Grosvenor, Duke of Westminster, is godfather to Prince George. No big deal then. But what’s the link to foodtech?
