A woman in the U.S. has been found guilty of trying to sell trade secrets from the giant Coca Cola company. The former employee attempted to sell confidential information to rival Pepsi for $US 1.5 MLN.
The scheme was uncovered after Pepsi notified Coke of an attempt by a high-level member of staff to sell them product samples. She was caught in a sting operation involving the FBI and her former boss.
