Increasing trends and interest in Food Supply Chain Management (FSCM) research has been documented over the years. The food supply chain is more complex and challenging to manage as compared other supply chains as it involves critical food conditions including quality, safety, and freshness. As the advancement of technology reshapes society and consumer behavior, the current emerging challenge for FSCM is to meet the increasing demand and the higher expectations of food quality from the customers. Adopting disruptive technology such as IoT may be an attainable way to upgrade and reshape a smart FSCM in the environment of Industry 4.0. The IoT emerges as a data-driven technology that is promising to bring significant improvement to FSCM as a whole system. Nonetheless, the tendency to employ IoT in FSCM varies across organizations due to various reasons. With this knowledge, the purpose of this paper was to investigate and identify factors affecting the adoption of IoT as a disruptive technology in supply chain management. To meet our objectives of this research, we employed a systematic literature review of 45 peer-reviewed journal articles on the topic of IoT in supply chain management. The review findings showed that factors affecting IoT adoption vary in terms of context and approach used. The list of the most important factors included performance perceived benefit, cost, data complexity, compatibility, technical knowledge, hardware & infrastructure, peers and government support, security & privacy concern, and adoption willingness.
