Whether Mao himself knew of the business venture founded by an American and a Portuguese gentlemen in 1949, over half a century ago, is yet unknown. But they both left Macau a few years later allowing for the creation, in 1951, of the Macau Coca Cola Beverage Company, which to this day is 100 percent controlled by a local business family.
A Coca-Cola chegou a Macau praticamente ao mesmo tempo que Mao Tse Tung chegou ao poder, em 1949.
