June 11 , 2014
The Wall Street Journal reports that Ford Motor Co. and Heinz are teaming up to use extra tomatoes left by Heinz to make auto parts.
"Our goal is to develop a strong, lightweight material that meets our vehicle requirements, while at the same time reducing our overall environmental impact," a Ford researcher said.
Media notes that the two companies are attempting to use plant-based products in innovative ways. Heinz also teamed up with Coke to use ketchup in bottles made with super cane.
