In December 2020, Marubeni has invested in a Japanese start-up, DAIZ Inc., which produces and develops innovative, eco-friendly plant-based meat ingredient "Miracle Meat" from germinated beans. Under this agreement, Marubeni is in charge of procuring raw materials as well as sales and marketing of their products in Japan and US.
