Full name of registrant:  Innovative Food Holdings, Inc.

PART 11 RULE 12b-25 (b) AND (c)

      If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or
expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the
following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate.)

[X]   (a) The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form
      could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;

[X]   (b) The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on
      form 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof will
      be filed on or before the 15th calendar day following the prescribed due

      on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and

[ ]   (c) The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c)
      has been attached if applicable.


      State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Form 10-K, 20-F, 11-K,
10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report portion thereof could not be
filed within the prescribed time period.

      As reported in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 14, 2006, our
president left the company and a board member assumed the title of interim
president. As a result of these changes we are unable to timely complete the
Form 10-KSB and file it on time.


      (1) Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this

      Joe DiMaggio, Jr.                 239                    596-0204
           (Name)                    (Area Code)           (Telephone Number)

      (2) Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of
      the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment
      Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter
      period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed?
      If the answer is no, identify report(s).
                                                              |X| Yes    |_| No

      (3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations
      from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected
      by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion
                                                              |X| Yes    |_| No

      If so: attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively
and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable
estimate of the results cannot be made.

      The registrant currently expects that its revenues will reflect an
increase of approximately 19% over 2004 to $5,561,614 and a loss for the year of
$494,968, approximately 67% lower than in 2004.
