Peru's ENACO plans to launch a beverage based on coca -- and it's not tea

Peru firm exports coca leaves: "Stepan buys about 110 tons of coca leaves from ENACO each year to make cocaine for pharmaceutical companies.

Now ENACO is trying to find legitimate ways to industrize coca production. This story describes a "power drink to compete with imported, high caffeine drinks." That sounds like a challenge to Coca Cola.
