    In recent years, application and integration of RFID-related technologies and systems have been widely expanding particularly in supply chain and logistics sectors. For instance, there has been a steady increase in applying radio frequency identification (RFID) tags into logistic warehouses in order to improve traceability of SKU (stock keeping units) and achieve a real-time visibility of inventory data and management. Thus, research and development of RFID-enabled supply chains needs to be addressed. This paper presents a framework in development of an RFID-enabled supply chain network to enhance traceability in integrity of Halal-meat products. This includes an RFID-based monitoring process for Halal meat supply chains (HMSC) which consist of farms, abattoirs, transporters, retailers and consumers. Based on this, an RFID-based HMSC monitoring system was proposed through a combination of an RIFDenabled inventory management system, a GPRS (general packet radio service) system, and a GPS (global positioning system). A multi-objective mathematical model was developed to describe the proposed HMSC. Subsequently, a Petri-net model was also developed to examine the proposed RFIDenabled HMSC network to gain some initial results in terms of network performance of a developed HMSC.
