In this respect one should develop alternative sources of food supply to provide food security in major disasters. This study provides the analysis of the current situation and trends in promoting food security at the global level, more precisely, in the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union. We have examined the world experience in food security provision. In this respect, the leading role is currently played by the UN, European Union and by the World Health Organization. These institutions have developed practical recommendations to improve food security. The conditions of food security in the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union are determined by the authors. We also have substantiated the expediency of the proposed cluster approach to food industry development, as well as related industries. It affects productivity improvement, creates opportunities for innovation and fosters new business. Enterprises of all forms of ownership can be easily integrated in a cluster. In this case, agricultural activities are of particular interest not only as a source of food for the population, but also as a source of fodder that is critical for animal husbandry, providing meat and dairy products.
