The destabilization of the world food market, as well as the frequent interruptions in the supply of agricultural raw materials and food products due to the global coronavirus pandemic, have catalyzed the growing interest of the overwhelming majority of countries in the world to ensure the highest possible level of national food security. The research is devoted to the study of the agri-food systems of Saudi Arabia, Japan and Singapore, as countries with the most progressive experience in the field of agricultural production. The author identified the production of crop products through hydroponics, meat substitutes based on vegetable proteins, laboratory-grown cultured meat, as well as alternative proteins for the fodder base of animal husbandry, poultry farming and aquaculture as the most promising scientific and technical innovations in the field of agro-industrial complex. The results of the study showed the need to adapt advanced food production technologies to the agro-industrial complex of the Russian Federation.
