In recent years, there has been a growing concern about safety and quality of food in the public society. This requires food suppliers or retailers who can monitor their food supply chains providing adequate information that can be easily accessed by customers who purchase food products in supermarkets. This can be achieved partially by implementing fast-growing IT techniques such as an integrated RFID (radio frequency identification)-based management system into an entire network of food supply chains. Nevertheless, this may lead to additional costs that need to be addressed when designing and implementing such an RFID-based food supply chain network. This paper presents a development of a multi-objective mathematical model that was used for quantifying a proposed design of a three-echelon Halal meat supply chain (HMSC) network, which is monitored by an integrated RFID-based management system. The study was aimed at maximizing the integrity of Halal meats, return of capital investment and minimizing costs in implementation of such a system into the HMSC network. A case study was also used for examining the validation and applicability of the developed HMSC model.
