The complexity in the Agri-Food Supply Chain (AFSC) has made the traceability of causes of disease very difficult in the supply chain. This is more evident when there is an outbreak or pandemic as a result of food consumption. Governmental and health organizations have been championing for food transparency standards in order to easily trace and adequately recall such contaminated product. Stakeholders in this supply chain have been adopting centralized systems of traceability that are prone to manipulations and single-point of attacks. But as advancement is rapidly driving Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), researchers have attempted applying the potentials of blockchain technology in the agri-food industry. Despite the huge tunes of researches already conducted in this area, there is still little to non-practical implementation in the industry. This paper investigates the phenomenon and proposes a conceptual framework to drive future practical researches in this field. An algorithm was also developed to address one of the conflict resolution challenges in the supply chain as it was identified to be one of the major challenges causing stakeholders’ skepticism on the acceptability of blockchain technology in AFSC.
