Auto maker Ford Motor Co said on Tuesday it was teaming up with ketchup maker Heinz, owned by billionaire investor Warren Buffett’s holding company Berkshire Hathaway Inc and U.S. investment firm 3G Capital, to look at using tomato fibers in car production. It is testing the use of dried tomato skins, a waste product from making Heinz’s famous red sauce, to form part of wiring brackets or coin holders, hoping the use of more plant-based plastic over petroleum-based materials will reduce the environmental impact of car production.
