This research contributes valuable information to the dairy product supply chain, providing insights to producers, distributors, and other actors of the dairy production chain. Results showed that the importance of information about food traceability for improving market demand for traceable dairy products. Further work will be needed to improve consumers' understanding of the potential benefits of traceable systems in the dairy product quality and security system.
