The Sustainability Consortium’s Trade Network Model is designed to predict production regions for a given commodity based only on the country that it was purchased in. The model follows international trade flows back to countries that produce and export substantial quantities of the given commodity and takes into account broker nations that import and export a commodity but do not produce it.
