The original Thai version sells more than well enough in thailand for the founder and his family to be well off. 

So much so, they can get away with murder!

Marketing someone else's idea, and still getting annual dividend payments of €343m 33 years later, is a mistake I'd be prepared to make.

How much did they pay to the cocaine snorting, cop killer???

It’s really quite depressing that a man can earn a dividend of €343m and people can still find fault 😄🤷‍♂️

But the Mateschitz version sells worldwide. And this is a big difference. 

Yes, but without the original there would be no Red Bull and Mateschitz is an honest guy who knows to appreciate that fact and therefore didn’t rip him off!

As far as I’m concerned it’s not “them”, it’s just the one guy and he’s not really involved with Red Bull apart from being an heir of a guy who is involved/was involved.

Oh, I think he had unlimited support from the family, it is the families influence that have so far left him untouched!

I remember reading something to the tune that they publicly disowned him or at the very least asked him to surrender. Might have been a publicity stunt, though, and he’s definitely financially stable, but I don’t think he’s untouched because of his family. I think he’s untouched because he fled the country.

Almost every country has their own homegrown, world famous product, for which them and the country have become synonymous. Coke/Pepsi, Apple, Sony, Honda/Toyota, Samsung, Mercedes, Ferrari, IKEA, Fish & Chips. Heh. You get the idea.

 

I’d really like to see the Thais do the same. They’ve got plenty of their own unique, distinctive products that could do it, like Red Bull, but can’t seem to pull it off. It took a German to come here and do that for them. And as been said, in that process the connection to Thailand was lost.

 

Well, there’s the Carabao energy drink, named for the famous country band, a proud national symbol of theirs. I guess it’s doing well enough to be advertised in the Premier League. As is the Chaokoh coconut milk. But now they got that monkey labor problem. Hmm.

 

C’mon Thais, what else can you bring to the world? Is it time for Thep Thai to take on Colgate? And the Flying White Rabbit to rival Pepto Bismol and Gaviscon? Don’t let another farang seize the opportunity again!

I would like to have such a Mateschitz too that makes endless money for me. I never understood why he didn't produce his own drink. He has only 49 percent of the Thai company. Perhaps one of his biggest mistakes in his life. 

I'm sure he is crying every night that he only makes 330 million a year instead of 550 million. He would be able to afford 50 villas instead of just 30, and 5 yachts instead of just 3.
