The future excites many people living on our planet. Some people think of the future as their own achievements and opportunities, while others make plans to develop their business and ensure its viability. But both are United by one thing – they need food every day: in the present time and in the future. This article describes the forecast until 2030 for the development of the food industry. The main parameters of the food industry of the future period are predicted: what will be the sources of raw materials, methods of processing of packaging and storage. New solutions of outdated problems of food production are discussed: resource deficit, genetically modified food sources, food waste, non-decomposing packaging and other challenges of the present time.

The method of foresight is used, when experts in this field of the economy Express their assumptions about which of the emerging trends in the development of the food industry will be fixed, how they are modified, what its traditional parameters will remain in the past.

On the basis of the conducted research it is concluded that the food industry development, the emergence of new resource sources of food protein and food energy, a significant change in the technological apparatus of the food industry of the world economy, a decisive turn to the solution of the problem of food waste and recycling of food packaging.

The reported study was funded by RFBR according to the research project No № 18-07-00275. 2018.
