In recent years there has been increased focus on traceability in food supply chains. Process mapping for traceability in food supply chains is a way of describing where information which is necessary to maintain traceability is lost. There exist many ‘methods’ for this, but few (if any) of them are formalised as scientific publications. Cost benefit calculations are important in all areas of research and management. With respect to implementing traceability, an appropriate cost benefit analysis will be an important tool. A better understanding of the different methods would enable advancement of this area of research.
