Abstract

To address food insecurity and achieve efficient food recall, many technologies have been investigated in recent years. One of the most promising technologies is Blockchain, which already been successfully used in financial aspects such as bitcoin, is attracting interests from food supply chain management. As blockchain has characteristics such as decentralization, security, immutability, smart contract, it is therefore expected to improve sustainable food supply chain management and food traceability. This paper uses content analysis methods to carry out a comprehensive systematic literature review in blockchain adoption within food supply chain. We proposed four propositions and five potential challenges.
