Over two-thirds of consumers say that living a more sustainable lifestyle is important to them.

Consumer sentiment research looked at retail sales from 2017-2020 and showed that consumer spending on products with environmental, social and governance (ESG) claims grew at a faster rate than products without such claims (Am et al., 2023).
Magnetic induction heating is a highly efficient and novel means of heating food products. This project investigated the potential for using magnetic induction to improve the efficiency of evaporation in the maple industry.
