An active introduction of advanced achievements of science, which provide an impelling impetus to structural changes in the economy and stimulate production of innovative high-tech products, can be considered to be the prevailing trend of the latest development in the world. Using the correlation analysis there has been carried out an investigation of the relationship between dynamics of basic foodstuffs consumption in households and dynamics of first time registered diseases among the population of Ukraine, the results of which emphasise the necessity of developing the health food industry, based on innovative technologies and new products, and its result is to serve the needs of the population in a healthy and functional nutrition as a major element. With this purpose there have been investigated innovative functional food products (IFFP), their nature and types, which are produced in Ukraine and are approved by the state sanitary-epidemiological and major domestic producers. However, despite the proven benefits of eating IFFP in the form of prevention, or mitigation of disease of the person, in Ukraine their share does not exceed 3-5% of all known food products. The results of the analysis of the innovative activity at food industry enterprises of Ukraine over a period of 2010 – 2015 show negative trends of innovative development of enterprises. Most of the investment in innovative projects is carried out at the expense of business entities. Unstable dynamics is also a characteristic feature of the funds flow of enterprises for the implementation of innovation. Thus, the main problem of the domestic food industry, concerning the production of IFFP, consists in not enough or even complete lack of proper funding. Therefore, in order to increase the innovation activity of food industry enterprises it is necessary to increase significantly the funding from the state and have changes in the legislation.
