“The narcotics were found by customs officials in a container filled with Himalaya salt from Pakistan,” the Rotterdam prosecutor’s office announced in a statement.

The Dutch authorities worked together closely with the British National Crime Agency (NCA) on the seizure.

According to Dutch officials, the seized drugs have a street value of around 45 million euros ($55 million/PKR 8.7 arab).

Based on information from their UK counterparts, the Dutch police arrested five suspects, three of whom had been remanded in custody.

Himalayan Pink Salt.

The high-end salt, only found south of the Himalayas in Pakistan, has a distinctive pink hue and generally costs up to 20 times the cost of regular table salt or sea salt.

It was not the first time that drug traffickers have hidden narcotics in high-end imports.

Prosecutors said the investigation is ongoing and provided no further details.

The seizure comes less than a week after customs officials in Rotterdam intercepted 1,329 kilograms of cocaine hidden between bags of coffee beans.
