The article reveals the northern and Arctic specifics of food security, including unfavorable conditions for agriculture, low provision of biological resources, a decrease in the level of self-sufficiency of the population in agricultural products, and a high dependence of food on imports. The author considers risks and threats to food security and measures to overcome them. The main directions of ensuring food security related to the availability of domestic and imported food products, improving the quality of life, and reducing the poverty of citizens are proposed.
