Abstract: The current stage of development of the agricultural sector in Kazakhstan is characterized by the instability of development, the monopoly of large agricultural and processing enterprises, and the low competitiveness of products manufactured by small business entities. The consistent and effective development of the cooperative movement in the countryside is now of great importance for overcoming the long agrarian crisis and improving the current situation in the agricultural sector. In this regard, the research carried out in this article is devoted to the definition and justification of prevailing tendencies for the development of rural consumer cooperation. The research is executed on materials of the Kostanay region of the Republic of Kazakhstan. According to the conducted studies, such tendencies may include: development of an algorithm for the formation of a cooperative organization, development and solution of economic and mathematical models for determining optimal parameters of a cooperative, formation of a mechanism for supporting rural consumer cooperation at the regional level. The development and application in practice of scientifically grounded tendencies for increasing the efficiency of development of rural consumer cooperation will make it possible for the agricultural sector of the Kazakh economy to occupy a rightful place in the national economy of the country. The highly efficient functioning of cooperative structures, in turn, will ensure an increase in the economic performance of both individual shareholders (personal farms) and the cooperative organization as a whole, and will contribute to the growth of economic activity of the rural population.
