Company Background
In 1982, Dietrich Mateschitz became aware of products called "tonic drinks", which enjoyed widespread popularity throughout the Far East. The idea to market these functional drinks outside Asia came to him while sitting at a bar at the Mandarin Hotel in Hong Kong. In 1984, Mateschitz founded Red Bull.

This was not only the launch of a completely new product, in fact it was the birth of a totally new product category. Meanwhile Red Bull is present in over 164 countries.
