The steady increase in food falsification, which has caused large economic losses and eroded consumers’ trust, has become a pressing issue for producers, researchers, governments, consumers and other stakeholders. Tracking and authenticating the food supply chain to understand provenance is critical with a view to identifying and addressing sources of contamination in the food supply chain worldwide. One way of solving traceability issues and ensuring transparency is by using blockchain technology to store data from chemical analysis in chronological order so that they are impossible to manipulate afterwards. This review examines the potential of blockchain technology for assuring traceability and authenticity in the food 38 supply chain. It can be considered a true innovation and relevant approach to assure the quality of the third step of the analytical processes: data acquisition and management.
Blockchain technology has been the subject of extensive research lately, but scarcely in connection with supply chain traceability. Although some companies have launched pilot projects using blockchain technology to manage their supply chains (Kharif, 2016; Tian, 2016), no detailed information about the technical implementation of such projects has been reported. In any case, the retail industry has seen potential in using this technology for improved traceability. Thus, in a recent study, English & Nezhadian (2017) claimed that, while some properties of blockchain implementation might be useful towards supply chain management, there are still few uses to support this assertion. With so little research on this subject, it is difficult for industrial stakeholders to understand exactly how blockchain technology could be used in their specific businesses. In order to better understand the technology and, possibly, generate new
