The quarterly reporting comprises results from samples of fresh and frozen fruit and vegetables as well as corn – both conventionally and organically grown. The National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark, prepares and publishes the quarterly reports.

The Q2 2013 report shows that none of the pesticide residues detected in fruit, vegetables and corn constitute a health risk.
