Over the past few years, there has been growing research interest in the Internet of Things (IoT). Both academics and industrialists have developed and deployed IoT-based applications for transparency and efficiency within the food sector. Some of the IoT applications that have been successfully implemented are related to tracking, tracing and monitoring food products and other resources, which contributed to improved efficiency as well as better traceability. This chapter focuses on the utilization of IoT technologies in the food supply chain (FSC) specifically post-farm gate until food reaches the retailer’s shelves. It presents IoT applications that have been successfully developed and deployed in FSCs, the pros and cons of IoT implementation and finally, it describes future trends such as elements of Industry 4.0, blockchain, intelligent packaging, and artificial intelligence.
