Different approaches to commodity movements treat knowledge and information in different ways. As Hughes (2000, 179) demonstrates ‘. . knowledge plays a vital part in re-shaping the morphology of a commodity network and defining the flows within it is central to an understanding of how retailers shape. . and influence the process of production’. While knowledge often is understood as fixed and ‘one way’ in the commodity chain approach, circuit and network analyses view it as multifaceted, circulating between producers, retailers and consumers.
