Abstract:
In the modern world, information technology (IT) has been incorporated in most development activities. The food production industry is one of the recent industries to embrace IT in their major daily operations. The aim of this paper is to review the technical and scientific state of the art of internet-based technologies and future trends in the Food industry. These technologies are mainly classified into Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) for supply chain management, quality and safety monitoring, e-commerce, robotics, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Since all emerging technologies are coupled with challenges, the study addresses both challenges and benefits of incorporating IT in the food industry. This paper discusses how IT can be integrated to enhance the safety and quality of food products. Internet standards and the role of social media and smartphone applications in agriculture and food industry are the other important aspects that are discussed in separate sections. Also, this paper highlights the potential of Internet-based applications, which may be efficient in future as well as the role of IT in support of sustainable food choices. The paper concludes by arguing that awareness be raised within the agro-food industry on the importance of the adoption of Internet-based technologies as a critical success factor in the twenty-first century.
