Australian Border Force found it in a consignment that came by sea cargo at Port Botany from Thailand on May 4, NSW police said in a statement early this morning.

They said it was discovered in 62 large cardboard boxes labelled food items and electric barbecue grills.

The consignment allegedly contained 316kg of methylamphetamine, with an estimated potential street value of $94.5 million.

Police are hoping that anyone with any information about the drugs will contact them.
