The main causes of food inflation in Russia and ways of its overcoming are examined in the article. The aggregate demand reduction in food has determined the state of the food market in 2015 due to interaction between two macro-economic trends: food inflation growth that exceeds inflation as a whole, and the reduction in the income solvency of the population. The result of negative trends is the reduction in consumption by the population of main types of full-fledged, indispensable foodstuffs. Food inflation in Russia is a natural tendency of global processes in the market when food prices approach the prices in the world markets. One of the main reasons of food inflation is the shortage of the commodity supply: amount of internal food resources is insufficient for satisfaction of domestic demand and food export reinforces the commodity shortage. On the basis of statistical information some market niches, which import should be substituted first of all, were revealed. Research has shown that measures on food saturation of market in terms of import substitution are not effective. Retailers enlarge the range by new goods which quality is lower of traditional, usual for buyers of foodstuffs. It is necessary to develop an effective mechanism of state regulation of food market, including the mechanisms of development of small and medium-sized business.
