The Japanese love tofu and soy sauce and Honda loves to ship soybeans from the U.S. back home. In a very smart venture to mitigate returning auto-part containers back to Japan empty, Honda processes their own soybeans and ships them back to Japan. Honda pays farmers as much as $1.10 more a bushel over what the open market dictates and even grows soybeans on their property in Ohio. Honda runs a soybean processing plant near the Accord plant and had $10 million in soybean sales from March 2004 and March 2005.
