“Conduct research about residues on flowers and plants and engage with stakeholders concerned by the issue to map out how residues are introduced into the supply chain and have a clearer, joint understanding of the issue.
In a second step, create a management residue protocol to support growers to reduce residues and a theoretical model to analyse the risk of residues that can be used by individual companies as a tool for residue risk analysis.”
