I checked their website today. It now redirects from .com to .life. They have also reworked the site and it no longer includes mention of Haas (It previously still had Haas info up many months past the divorce!)

The new site says "You can buy Rich Energy from a rapidly increasing number of retailers and right here on our website you can order a satisfying case of 24 cans delivered straight to you." While you can buy direct, they don't list who it's rapidly increasing number of retailers are. The prior site did provide some level of "where to buy". That seems gone on the new one.

You have to jump through hoops to buy it here in the US. You can find it listed on sites like Amazon and Wal-Mart, but behind the scenes it is being distributed here in the US by companies that specialize in overstock, salvaged or discontinued items. I wonder if they bought a bunch of pre-logo change stock and are selling it in the US? Images on both sites I mention above show the old logo.

How they remain in business is beyond me. Low overhead as they don't actually do anything?

I donít think they have any idea how to run a company, even online. It seems all they care about is good PR for themselves. Is it any surprise they havenít listed which retailers they are in? Do any retailers want to be associated with them?

It seems they are reduced to having to sell their products online to get anywhere. Fair play if you want to try marketing your own energy drink, but itís hardly like thereís a shortage of those around at this time. And having a holier that thou attitude really doesnít help matters either. Especially if you donít produce the results

And if you look at that listing and check who actually fulfills the product. It is a discount reseller. Probably similar to the ones I listed. I again wonder if that was Rich Energy dumping their old stock with a logo they can no longer use and that is what we are seeing.

"Premium product" sold via "bargain bin" distributors. Next step is the "As seen on TV" section in your favorite big store.

I think it is similar to the ones you listed, which prompted me to post ebay link.

Either way the product hasn't exactly set the world alight. No wonder it's easier to buy online than in shops

If I did see cans of this for sale in a shop I’d probably snap a photo, but having seen their performance and behaviour I don’t think I’d want to put their drink anywhere near my mouth.

Disgraceful that a sponsor who were a shambles with Haas are using this now to make such suggestions about a great team. Please donít give them any publicity

I think they did a great job selling a story to investors who funded all this nonsense. I mean I would be surprised if not at least $10 millions has been spend, partly to Haas and the rest blown away on stupid stuff.
Either they found investors willing to put money in Rich Energy, or it is a much shadier background, but i don't see the guys behind rich energy blowing their personal money on F1 etc.

Iím glad Williams have taken a stand against Rich Energy. Hopefully they will find a better sponsor than them to help keep the team running. Especially as beggars canít be choosers
