Abstract:A blockchain system is a P2P distributed network. Initially applied in the financial domain, the qualities of the distributed ledger increase trust and transparency among all of the nodes, decrease the possibility of a single point of failure and, importantly, alleviate the responsibility of accounting from third parties. Even though the most famous application of blockchain is of financial nature (Bitcoin), the aforementioned qualities can be beneficial to other domains. With the development of globalization, food safety is a cause of concern for the producers and the customers. Standardized sharing of quality assurance information (QAI) with transparency and data immutability of blockchain could increase the trust of customers by enhancing the traceability of products. In addition to food safety, the impact of blockchain adoption can also carry economic benefits and logistics optimization for SC actors. This research presents a state-of-the-art literature review of blockchain technology (BT) in dairy supply chains (DSC) and generic supply chains (SC), elicits a list of technical system development recommendations and showcases the considerations software engineers will have to face while developing such systems with the Hyperledger Sawtooth framework.
