The huge cache amounted to 370 kilograms and it has a street value of $56 million, making it the largest cocaine discovery on French soil. A spokesperson for Coca-cola France stated that employees notified the police and a full scale investigation has commenced. The company’s regional president,Jean-Denis Malgras told newsmen that no employee of Coca-cola was involved. He said;
