International News - All About Sweet Potatoes

Toyota, the world's most successful car company, controls dozens of businesses that have hardly anything to do with automaking. The businesses are diverse in products/services and include Toyota Bio Indonesia, a grower and processor of sweet potatoes. Established in 2001, this subsidiary is 90% owned by Toyota. Some of the sweet potatoes are used to make various biodegradable plastics used in Toyota cars.
