Jón Ásgeir says that he has learned from the mistakes he made in the past but does not wallow in them. His biggest mistake was that he did not stop his expansion after purchasing Big Food Group for GBP 326 million in 2004. “If I had, I would probably be one of the wealthiest individuals in Europe today,” says Jón Ásgeir. “I regret it, of course, but live and learn.”

In the interview, Jón Ásgeir added that he is also interested in exploring the American commerce sector.
