Nevertheless, information provided by most traceability sys-tems is related to food quality and safety. Environmental and broader social related information is lim-ited. In this research-in-progress paper, we applied affordance theory to propose a research model that explains how an electronic-based traceability system provides possibilities for actions/affordances which can be actualised to achieve sustainable supply chains that create economic, environmental and social benefits simultaneously. In this paper, we first identify affordances provided..
