Belgian customs authorities found 1,500 packages containing 1.7 tons of cocaine hidden in a shipment of bananas, the Finance Ministry announced Wednesday, according to the Belga news agency.
The cocaine was found last week, during a routine search of a shipment from Colombia.
It follows the confiscation of almost 2 tons of cocaine in the port of Antwerp in June, Belga wrote.
Experts estimate that a kilo of cocaine costs around 75,000 euros (83,200 dollars) on the black market.
