Alla Ivanivna Rudych


Introduction. One of the main tasks of the agro-industrial complex is to provide the population with quality food products in the required volumes. However, the level of consumption of food depends on the world situation of domestic prices, incomes and other factors that collectively determine the production and investment priorities of food producers and consumer preferences of the population. In the context of the limited income of the population and the revision of social guarantees, issues of the availability and adequacy of food in the country are becoming of paramount importance.

Purpose. The article aims to assess the level of food security in the regions of Ukraine, to study the dynamic changes of the main indicators of volume and structure of consumption of basic food products, indicators of physical and economic availability of food, the relationship of production, consumption of food and income of the population.

Method (methodology). On the basis of observation data and statistic and economic and abstract and logical methods of analysis, the state, tendencies and extrapolation of the main indices of food safety have been identified.

Results. The comprehensive assessment of food security in the regions includes the analysis of the regional peculiarities of production and consumption of basic food products and the study of the main factors that cause them; the assessment of the level of food security of the regions of Ukraine and the identification of factors that affect its level and trends.

The state policy should be aimed at solving the main tasks. Among them we can distinguish the increase of the incomes of Ukrainian citizens, the stimulation and increase of the agricultural products and food products manufacturing. It will create conditions for saturation of the domestic market and stabilization of prices for basic food products.
