Coke secrets plot woman is jailed
Coca-Cola’s recipe has been a trade secret for 120 years. A former secretary at Coca-Cola has been sentenced to eight years in prison for plotting to steal the company’s secrets and sell them to rival Pepsi. Joya Williams, 42, was sentenced in Atlanta – Coca Cola’s home – after being found guilty in February. Then the court heard she stole confidential documents and samples of new products, passing them to two men to sell to Pepsi for at least $1.5m. Co-conspirator Ibrahim Dimson received a jail term of five years. Both he and another man, Edmund Duhaney, had pleaded guilty.
