The concepts of the food problem and food security are attracting more and more attention of the world community. Can food suppliers dictate terms to countries with conventional leverage over the global economy? Is the problem of food shortages a real threat to humanity or is it another myth designed to destabilize modern society? This paper will provide answers to these questions and allow us to look objectively at the current food situation in the world and assess what its impact on the global economy is. This study examines PRC’s food security and rural development principles in terms of international food policy. General scientific methods, such as analysis and synthesis of information, grouping, and systematization of data were used to collect information about changes in the international food market. The preliminary results of the research show that in the 21st century food problem escalates, and the international community organizes joint projects to implement food security programs. The conclusion can also be drawn that the Chinese government will continue to be one of the guarantors of sustainable food security development in the world. Consequently, China does not need to formulate a foreign policy under the threat of closing food distribution channels, which allows PCR to create an independent policy on the international arena. Keywords: food security, Chinese food policy, import / export of food products, international food cooperation.
