Lorenzo Mendoza & family was bornon October 05, 1965 in Venezuela. Lorenzo Mendoza runs Venezuela's largest food company, Empresas Polar, which was founded by his grandfather. It produces and sells beer and basic food items including flour, condiments, tuna fish and wine. A long-time critic of deceased former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, Mendoza continues to struggle with government policies. President Nicolas Maduro has called him an "oligarch of the devil" and has accused him of reducing production and hoarding products to create shortages. Mendoza has always denied these accusations. In December 2015, government officials reportedly entered Polar's Pepsi plant in Caucagua, detained employees and ordered them to restart production of goods, but the company said they could not be produced due to raw material shortages as a result of Venezuela's currency control system. The employees were subsequently released.
