Blockchain has been described as a breakthrough Information and Communication Technology having the potential to
ensure safe, immutable and transparent information exchange between actors. This study attempts to foresee
whether Blockchain will play an important role in traceability management and how this innovation is expected to
change the agri-food sector's future, using a Delphi group discussion with experts. According to our results, blockchain
is potentially recognised as a decentralised system able not only to harmonise safety and quality standards but also
to reduce bureaucracy. Greater efficiency and reliability of the system would lead to the establishment and
coordination of new supply chain relationships.
