Abstract: Agricultural consumer cooperation has a long history in Russia, is widely promoted, and supported financially and administratively at the federal and regional levels. In a broad sense, all agricultural producers can be considered as potential participants in cooperation, however, small forms, and especially household subsidiary plots are its main beneficiaries. At the present time, it is already possible to sum up the achievements of consumer cooperation in Russia, and find out how important it has become, primarily in fulfilling its basic function, - to serve as a channel for selling agricultural products, which is the purpose of this paper. The realization of the cooperative potential is defined here as the weight of agricultural products sold through supply and marketing cooperatives and purchased for processing by processing cooperatives from its total production in sectors of agriculture with high share of households. It was revealed that agricultural consumer cooperation as a marketing channel still plays an insignificant role at the country level in all analyzed types of products. At the same time, in some regions for certain types of products, its importance can be recognized as significant (the Republic of Sakha-Yakutia, Lipetsk, Vladimir, Chelyabinsk regions). In these regions this is mainly the result of the agrarian policy of the regional authorities, which take more extensive support of cooperation in comparison with federal measures.
