Abstract

In recent decades, numerous regulations about food traceability have been promulgated, in order to protect health and safety of final consumer and to prevent fraudulent behaviour. The aim of this paper is to propose a framework for tracking and tracing an extra-virgin olive oil supply chain, located in Calabria, in the South Italy. Starting from the results of a market survey, we propose a traceability model, which increases the perceived value of the product placed on the market, and can be easily reused by small enterprises. We outline some possi- ble future developments, based on the blockchain technology.
