Honda And Soybeans

Forbes has an interesting article on how Honda got into the soybean business. It started as a way to fill their otherwise-empty shipping containers that were outbound back to Japan (where soybeans are quite popular), and now they even grow them on the infield of their test track.

It's a small piece of their business, but I think it's yet another example of Honda continues to innovate (to be fair, GM's reuse of their manufacturing waste also gets a mention in the article).

Henry Ford was big on soybeans in the 1920s!
