Abstract—With the blossoming rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) in recent year’s internet of things play a significant role for the development of effective traceable supply chain management of animal products; traceability in animal products supply chain management is essential. But due to the special requirements of some applications, the existing technology cannot meet them effectively. The traceability in Animal products supply chain management is a hot issue for the researchers of IoT. Animal product traceability system must be constructed and give an assurance with the enhancement of internet of things. In this article we would discuss the significant role of IoT in animal product supply chain management, benefits of Internet of things in animal product supply chain management. Physical aspect of the use of the IoT is different between different animal products and lastly the involvement of IoT among the applied research and current practical applications. In Pakistan IoT based other emerging technologies are still in early foundation stage; especially in the animal products application of supply chain management. This paper also tries to highlight a new agricultural product supply chain management not only to achieve the visual quality and traceability of agricultural products and ensure people’s food quality and safety but also effectively control the food diseases.
