Mars Inc, the maker of M&Ms, Snickers, and Milky Way, was once one of the most secretive companies in the United States. But that has started to change during the last few years.

The 106-year-old company is making some big transformations in an effort to tackle new challenges and new opportunities.

We sat down with Mars chairman Stephen Badger to discuss why the company is opening up and to see what the $35 billion firm has planned for the future. We also got him to give us some insight into what working for a family company is really like.

"We all have an impact, and the goal is to minimize our impact, whether that's as an individual or as a corporation," Badger said.

"It's through Mars that I've had my eyes open to the reality that not only is business critical to solving today's issues, but it's actually, you know, fundamental to it ... The magnitude of issues facing the planet is such that business has got to be front and center in that dialogue and in addressing those issues."
